The food is reasonably priced and almost always very, very good. The Specials Menu is always interesting and if you like there is the standard menu as a backup. Drinks reasonably priced and mixed generously. Service is always good.

Very good neighborhood restaurant. Dinning and bar area always active. " Homemade menu" with entertainment ( usually guitar players) on some evenings. Good for couples or a business meeting. Check their specials on the web site.
