This place is off the beaten path, but it's worth the drive. The atmosphere is fun, and the food was very good. From red beans and rice to salad to grilled cheese, it was all great! They were busy, but the service was great.

Met friends for lunch here. It’s been a while since I’ve been here and will probably be while before I’m back. Food is pretty good, but over-priced for what you get. Service is alright, nothing special. Everything was matter of fact, not really warmly met....More
