A really enjoyable family diner. Food was not elaborate, but some original variations on familiar themes, all cooked and presented really well. Excellent range of beers. The local brews I tried were superb.

The tamales are amazing and we loved the spiraled sweet potato chips! The Jamaican jerk chicken and their pizza is also wonderful. Great staff and very eclectic and cool atmosphere!

The food and staff are great. The home cooked potato chips are great. You have to try the homemade sweet potato chips they are one of the best things I have ever ate.
