My husband and I stopped here after dropping our daughter off at college and were pleasantly surprised. Service was great, food and drinks were delicious, reasonable prices. It was a nice day and there was a band playing out on the deck.

The French fries with the wings on top are delicious! Their Korean wings are to die for amazing sauce and crunch to them! Have had anything I didn’t like from here. The Cuban is another go to fave of mine!
