This is a really nice place to eat. The service was so good. The waitress was quick but didn't rush us and she was very friendly. The 3 of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals and will definitely will go back again.

My wife and I recently had lunch here : a fried haddock sandwich and a grilled 'Rachel' (smoked turkey, cranberry slaw and Swiss cheese). Service was good, food was very good, price was fair.
