Traveling through Newport News and stopped by this little place on the corner of a strip center. Small dining space but delightful waitstaff and really good food. We tried 6 different item and all were very good. Very reasonable prices!

Rack of lamb was fabulous! Came for dinner on a Sunday and found it very casual and comfortable. The service was great as were the prices
