“Good Place for Sunday Brunch”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

The restaurant offers breakfast until 1 PM so both lunch and breakfast menus are available. Lunch specials re aso available. The potato chips are "home made." The food is good and the service is excellent. Its location on main street is convenient to parking. The atmosphere is casual and the dining room is a comfortable place and a good place for conversation. For even a more casual environment, the bar area has tables also.

“Good Local Restaurant”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

Eat there frequently. Very good food. Service is very spotty. Atmosphere is more of a bar atmosphere, although they have a separate dining room off to side...we prefer the bar side. Wine selection ok, but service knowledge lacking (e.g. wine was too warm when served). Chef does good job and menu is good.

“Love the Cream of Crab soup”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Cream of Crab soup is delish. Favorites are Salmon entrée, Caprese salad
Service is sometimes slow. You will want to be in the dining room if you want to talk, the bar is very noisy later in the evening. Rafael is very friendly and makes us feel at home.

“Surprisingly good food for Saturday Brunch”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

Had a party of 6 - so we were able to make a reservation even though I am not sure it was needed. The Front of house and Servers were both very friendly! The food was very good - they have a side with breakfast - called a Breakfast Kabob - which is sausage & bacon on a skewer covered with maple bbq sauce - YUM! I got Eggs, Breakfast Kabob, Red skin potatoes and Toast and all was perfectly made.
The Grand Marnier French Toast looked amazing - def trying it next time and there will be a next time.
Serve Brunch on Saturday & Sundays - which is a plus!

Lunch there with my sons and drinks there with my work family. The food is delicious and I've always had excellent service. Typically get appetizer and a salad with rare tuna...always good.
