Love a mich ultra and a club sandwich after a ride. Great service and food. Quick too. Outside under the tree are the best tables.

A casual, comfortable good-weather place (mostly outdoors) with fine live music, Tom Schenkle electric piano, and tasty foods on a simple menu served picnic style. Good drinks and congenial owner and assistant to provide excellent hospitality. I'll return for the music and BBQ, slaw and...More
