Food is delicious and cooked fresh. Very reasonable and large servings. Tables are in separate rooms in this Victorian house. Easy to get to with parking as it is not in the historic downtown area. Loved this place.

They open at 5pm. I would get there by 4:30 as they do not take reservations. There is a bar upstairs that you can have drinks while you wait.
