Great diner, 1st floor adjacent to Courtyard Marriot hotel, open late, full bar. The doughnut slider seems to grab most people's attention and for good reason. Great complementary flavors of sweet/salty. Would recommend when in the area and will try to visit again soon!

My father with whom I will be traveling, has Celiac disease. Are you able to accommodate those with a gluten allergy (rather than lifestyle preference)? Thank you!
