Great vibe, feels very authentic. Service was wonderful!! The owner was part of the live music entertainment that evening and he is quite talented. Food was very good. Not the typical fare one expects and that made it special. Looking forward to eating here again!

Older house that has been converted in to a restaurant that has a lot of ambiance. Food was really good and the service was spot on. Nice menu selection with daily specials.
