Came here with family as it was recommended by friends and sorry to say it was a let down. The interior is dated and the service matched it. We all chose something different from the menu and sadly the burger won!!

We were exploring the area and stopped by the dog-friendly outside tables for an appetizer and a beer. Both were excellent and the waitress was wonderful. Prices reasonable for the environment, we highly recommend it.
