The place was busy when we were there. It was schnitzel night which seems to be a big deal. The service was okay. Our server was obnoxiously hovering and very loud. She had good intentions, but we would have liked to see less of her....More

Chicken Caesar salad was fresh. Chicken was done correctly. Plate came with bread toasted. Service was very good. Meal was served within five minutes. Appears to be a family restaurant with beer, wine, and spirits also offered.

My first experience was at the bar. Terry was our waitperson and she was terrific. What a great sense of humor. She made our time there so enjoyable. Had breakfast there next day and it (eggs Benedict) was perfect. Will definitely return.
