Came here for lunch during our stay. The outdoor seating was awesome. Our server was very nice too. Outside of that, the food was slow to come out, several of the sides were wrong, and the quality seemed average at best.

Love the food and the atmosphere. I think they have the best breakfast and even if they are really busy the wait goes by quickly

We was there last week and ate there 3 different times. We loved everything we ordered! I had the fish and chips and loved the tarter sauce!!! I was wondering if you give out the recipe or just tell me what is in it. I make my own but it's not as good as yours!! Thanks! Lisa

I don't know. You would have to call the restaurant and ask them. I am sure you could find the phone number with a google search.
