The food here is always good and the wine selection is great. The service is friendly and knowledgeable. The noise level can be daunting at times, so look for a back room table.

The food was great, but the restaurant was too loud. The service was great. The bar was packed. Outside dining is a plus.

This is a popular local restaurant, lots of date nights and friends. Excellent for brunch as well. Very family oriented town, so if you have kids then bring them! They start off with a kids menu with crayons and a chocolate chip muffin to keep...More
