Oh this was a nice little find! Locally owned with a huge menu selection. Food was good. Dessert was delicious. The staff is super friendly. You can tell it's a favorite among the locals here.

We have been there on 2 occasions now. We found the location convenient for meeting friends from northern New York as we live in Syracuse. The staff is friendly. The food is tasty. Portions good.
