I arrived well before my friends and was treated very courteously by the staff. Service throughout our meal was excellent. The three of us ordered very different meals. The salmon was wonderful. The bottomless bread sticks are to die for!

Great atmosphere and food. We sat outside and even though its close to a highway, it felt like we were in a little sanctuary of fun music, relaxing seating, fire pits and happy hour drinks. Lovely place with good food.
