Been there twice and really enjoyed it. Sat outside both times - the little patio has big umbrella's for shade and is far enough off the road it is quiet. I've had the hummus plate and their salad with grilled chicken and it's very good food. The staff is very friendly and gracious. Service is the 'relaxed' side - this... More

I love this restaurant. I always enjoy my entree and the chocolate torte is the best dessert in Clayton! The service can be slow, so go with someone whose company you enjoy, have a glass of wine, slow down, and enjoy.

Went to have lunch with the wife and try someplace new. We started with the calamari, which was good. Then I had the Shrimp in vodka sauce and penne and wife Chicken primavera. I wasn't that impressed with the Shrimp dish, lacked flavor. The Chicken was okay. The place looked nice and service was good with very friendly service.

If you have a while for lunch, this is the place to go in Clayton. The food is always delicious and great quality. I have never been disappointed with any meal I have ordered from her. The crab cakes are awesome. I love the spinach salad with a crab cake for lunch... The stuffed chicken for dinner is a must.

This is our second visit, both times lunch. Excellent service and even better food! Skylines salad was fresh and awesome, tomato basil soup was perfect and didn't feel heavy at all. I also loved the quiche I had on another visit. We plan on returning to try a dinner. This location is very convenient for us.

I had the spinach salad with a crab cake. Wonderful size and just what I needed. Beautiful interior though we chose to eat outside on the patio which is just as pleasantly appointed with brick, ironwork, well manicured hedges and trees. I would heartily recommend this place as a foodies delight.

I can not say enough about this restaurant. I have worked for Tina a lot. The staff there are very much family. The food is always fresh and hot. I love that you can ask what is in your dish and they can tell you every ingredient. Great beer and wine selection. In and outdoor seating. I appreciate the rotating... More

I had a wonderful 1/2 club sandwich, soup and dessert there for lunch. It was very good and I plan to go there a lot because our lunches were better than any other place in Clayton.
