We had an amazing meal. The fish tacos and grilled salmon were delicious and the server was attentive and pleasant. We enjoyed our meal very much. The restaurant is in an interesting historic building and the atmosphere was very fun.

I had the steak and fries. Perfectly cooked steak and the garlic sautéed spinach was outstanding. My husbands fish and chips were excellent as well. Portion sizes were generous. The waitress was very friendly and attentive. Definitely a good local restaurant.

Unique choices, friendly staff, nice atmosphere and the food was tasty too. Visited here with friends and they weren't pushy when we sat around chatting after our dinner.

We eat here once every couple months. The food is always good and they have a large selection of tap beers for the area. I particularly enjoy the pork chop.

We have eaten here many times and the food has always been very good. The service is also good. The rainbow trout is one of our favorites. The noise level on a Friday or Saturday night is very loud. Better acoustics would be appreciated.
