It was a very busy Friday night and we were lucky to get a table without a reservation. The house was packed. The service was efficient and friendly and the meal good.

We have eaten here several times and always had good food. Located downtown Murphy's close to all shopping. We usually eat here when we come to Murphy's. We all had different things from the menu and they were all enjoyed.
