Was a great white table restaurant for a downtown dinning experience. Great food and service. Residents and visitors missed out on a gem of a restaurant. Hope new location ( Clark Summit) will bring new and old client to enjoy a great experience..

Visited on our way to New York. We were looking for a reasonable alternative to McDonalds, Wendy's, etc. and were pleasantly surprised to find this place. All meals were tasty and the service was good.
