Eggs benedict were good, but the coffee was terrible, and all the staff really looked like they didn't want to work there. Probably overworked and underpaid. Bummer. Not recommended.

Stopped for lunch, the sat us outside per request. The service was attentive. The pulled pork sandwich was good - fries ok. The others had fish tacos & eggs w/ avocado toast- they enjoyed!

Busy, casual place good to meet a few friends for a drink or settle in for a more formal meal. Good service. Friendly and knowledgeable about what's on the menu and drink lists. Nice local selection of beers and menu items.

Our family stopped in for a late lunch. Great atmosphere and lots of menu choices. I ordered chicken noodle soup and salad. I tried my sister's lamb burger, which was very tasty. Great thin cut fries.
