Food was delicious, had the shrimp with Cajun sauce on vegetables, salad with house spicy ranch was awesome. Service was perfect, not overbearing or ignored.

Eclectic establishment on Central Avenue. Good service and interesting menu. Portions are not huge, but unless you are ravenous they will do just fine. Prices are neither expensive nor inexpensive.

First and only visit though we should have received a second chance... Parking was great, we got there right when the restaurant opened (the best part). The initial service was good, and the restaurant seemed very presentable. However, on a very warm day, the restaurant...More
