Not much else around, we stopped in and were pleasantly surprised. The food is good! try the cauliflower dish, very tasty yet healthy. We also enjoyed the blackened fish tacos and the Korean wings. The cocktails (we stuck with G&T) were $13 each so our...More

This place is a little jewel, the tapas and cocktails are amazing. Our waiter was super friendly and fast. The Brussel sprouts and bone marrow dishes were yum! Definitely recommend, we went on a Sunday evening and were seated immediately.

This is called the Magnolia House when we visited. We had a group of 5 for a 10 am Saturday brunch. They open at 10 for brunch, which is a tad late. The only coffee offered was French press, which I don't care for. The...More
