Delicious food and awesome service to match. Michael was our waiter and was super helpful and attentive. Great atmosphere. Drinks are excellent as well. We had the salmon, mac and cheese, and ricotta ravioli. All were excellent. Glad we stopped in!

A 70 seat American-Fusion Restaurant, the only one in the area using truly local ingredients and changes thier menu every two weeks based on the availability of products. Both the beer menu and wine list are extensive and reasonable. As well one of the only restaurants that say if we don't have we will do our best to get it for your reservation.
