Great food, great service.We really enjoyed our dinner here. Cool little spot in downtown Prescott. Inside reminded us of some of the really cool old restaurants in S.F. Give it a try. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

Friendly staff, great food and even better prices. Met Mama and will DEFINITLY be going back. If you need directions ask almost anyone, if it isn't a landmark it should be.
