The food is prepared as you would expect from a kitchen that is highly regarded. It is comfortable food but the effort to raise the bar on the ingredients, preparation and creativity has paid off. You can also taste the freshness of the ingredients. This is a great place to go with friends! It's a noisy neighborhood place done right.

We have been to the restaurant about four times and were never disappointed. My wife was very pleased with the shrimp over jalapeno grits. I had the short ribs was was very impressed. Better make a reservation if you want to eat on a weekend night. Reservation are a good idea any night.

What a great place. Was looking for a casual place with great food and they did not disappoint. Sat at the bar and the bartender/ server was great, she knew the menu and recommended the halibut which was the special of the day "fantastic". Pretty much everyone at the bar was eating and all the plates looked wonderful. Don't miss... More

Mike was our server and he was terrific. We needed to come at 5:15 on MLK day because they were booked til 7:15 but in the future we would make a reservation ahead of time. White sangria very good. I had Waldorf salad for entree--very large but excellent. No choice for small plate but only $14. SIL had small club... More

I had the trout which was excellent. My friend had a salad. The portions were generous. The waiter checked out ingredients and modified the sautéed chard to accomodate my diet. The sliced bread is scrumptious. Not too busy at lunch. A nice relaxed atmosphere.

Restaurant was busy for a late lunch on Tuesday after Christmas. There was a good reason - the food was reasonably prices and quite good. I had the chicken salad and my wife had a delicious salad to which she had added roasted chicken. Both were great. The service at the bar was also very good. We had pomegranate green... More

I am not a foodie so take this for what it is worth. My party of 4 went on a Tuesday night. It was crowded but not packed. Service was excellent and recommendations were appreciated. I started with the Chicken Tortilla soup, excellent. We finished with the carrot cake which was an amazing way to end the night. If you... More

My wife and I each had a great salad before we split the brisket dinner. We are light eaters and we are glad we split the meal given the size of the portions. They use a team approach to service. We had one main server but six different people serviced our table at any given time. We mentioned it was... More
