Wow, we stumbled upon this hidden gem and were so impressed with the taste of every bite! The potatoes as an appetizer were amazing, mouth watering—probably could have stopped there as they were very filling for two. But we also got flatbread pizzas. The crusts...More

Great service! Good food. We were staying at hotel and meandered down for dinner. Had the hearty mac and cheese. It was great comfort food for a chilly night. Waiter/bartender made great mixed drinks. Loved the cozy atmosphere.

Enjoyed our 20th anniversary dinner here on 9/20/17. The server was wonderful and the food an excellent value. I enjoyed the filet mignon, which was done perfectly. My husband had the tenderloin tips, which were tender and very flavorful (kind of spicy though). Highly recommended!

Breakfasts here are extremely popular and highly reasonable. There's a great happy hour from 3 to 5: drinks and appetizers! Really a pleasure. Dinners have a rather basic menu that seldom changes. The dinner salad's lettuce is difficult to enjoy, would be better in a...More

I believe they have a patio; not sure about the pet friendliness. You could call them.
