“Eh...smell turned us off.”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

Walked in to an overwhelming smell of....maybe Pine Sol?? It truly hit us in the face so we almost left. But since we were tight on time, we stayed. I can't eat wheat so my choices were very limited on the lunch menu. Naturally, I had to have a salad. Nothing special, but still tasty. Atmosphere very plain. Will try for dinner sometime, so we'll see. I'm hopeful since I've heard good things.

“Perfect Dinner”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

My daughter had dinner here during our WVU orientation visit. We were tired after a long day and it was pouring rain. From the host that sat us to the waitress to the food, it was a very easy comfortable , enjoyable experience and dinner. Very good food, we each had a nice salad and shared a huge grilled chicken salad. Prices are reasonable and they had a nice menu, we will surely go back!!

“This is in Morgantown????”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

Visiting grad school son and wanted a nice place but so funny and gracious waiter and the food - so wonderful, flavorful and not expensive by restaurant standards. Not busy but should have been as everything was excellent from service to food - so it could use a little ambiance - it's Morgantown. This is a MUST go to when in Morgantown as we have at least 4 more years there and we need this place to stay in business.
