Love to go. Sit at the bar, order app and drinks. Their food is always consistently good, service too. Make a reservation "in season" as it fills up.

Excellent food and service!! The exterior is nothing special, just an older storefront in town. The food, however, was wonderful and the wait staff was so friendly and professional. The interior is so different than the exterior and is very nice. We wished that we...More

Yes. My wife follows a gluten free diet, and Mr. P's has a number of choices that are just as good as the rest of the menu.
