Vibrant atmosphere after the town’s Christmas parade! Lots of diners, but typical friendly service. Salmon dinner was again (it’s my favorite menu item, I’ll confess) perfect. Asparagus beneath was crunchy and tasty. Enjoy!

Great decor and I like that they have a lot of different specials every day. The 343 burger is great. It is juicy and the mozzarella cheese with the pesto sauce is delicious.
