Food was outstanding and the soup was clam and mushroom, The service was excellent. Did not do the desserts because the Club sandwich was just enough

The soups at Limbertwig are all wonderful! The sandwiches and wraps are also fresh and very tasty! Terrance and the staff are friendly and helpful with deciding between all the delicious choices. My favorite is the tuna wrap with honey mustard dip.
