The food was good, but the service was average. We had Smoked Pork Chop,Chicken & Ribs Combo and Salmon. Appy plates not cleared, empty glasses and bottles not cleared and a wait for the bill.

Stopped by for lunch while passing through. My fish taco was very good followed by a very good cappuccino. My husband didn't enjoy his food as much. Pleasant service. Reasonable price. Good location.

Stopped in here for the first time today for lunch. We were very pleasantly surprised and our lunch exceeded our expectations. From the decor, the warm greeting at the door, the excellent service and fantastic food we will definitely be back for dinner sometime.
