Nice lunch spot! Service is slow. Vibes are good. Food was tasty. Parking limited but in close proximity to other attractions.

Went by with friends for lunch. They were very accommodating for a table of 7, and split the bill without complaint. They did automatically add gratuity, which is common for bigger groups. The food was good but not exceptional.

Stopped here for lunch on the way to Eastern Shore; had a delicious, memorable burger with pimento cheese and great fries. The other diner enjoyed the steak sandwich with slaw and fries. Busy, happening place at lunch. Would love to try for dinner as well!

Great service and food and right in downtown across from the Reannaissance Hotel. They have lots of draft beer and fresh food.
