We came here for a birthday dinner and were blow away. Staff was incredible and the food was even better. We started off with the pretzel bites, cheese, and bacon jam along with the special appetizer for the night - clam strips. Both were delicious and I was impressed by the hearty portion of clam strips. My main course was... More

Nice little place that is relatively new to the area. Food was great as well as the service. We sat out in their patio area and it was very nice. The menu had a variety of items to please everyone.

Lunch today was excellent Caesar salad that we split, and two bowls of their famous Swiss onion soup, which was very good. Combined with very nice server Mo, a very pleasant experience!

Thought we would invite our daughter (she bought the gift card) to join us for dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. It did not disappoint us as we started the evening by having a glass of fine wine and visiting with the partner/chef, Sharon who has a fantastic memory (see remembered us from a prior dinner with our daughter...
