Located in the St. Johns Town Center on restaurant row this establishment offers the typical American fare. Burgers fries, steaks and salads. This is a good place for couples and the restaurant is dimly lighted offering a quiet romantic atmosphere.

Four diners, each with different selections. All expressed high satisfaction. French Dip was excellent and at the other end, a veggie burger was equally good. Their " Mac and Cheese like no other" was just that. Unbelievable. Even "Alex's Salad" hit a high mark.
