A cozy restaurant with great home style comfort food. We had the meatloaf, Mahi Mahi and short ribs...all delicious and plentiful. Try the desert sampler, but get multiple forks! Great service in a friendly atmosphere.

I was there with three other people. I had chicken pot which had no flavor, tasted like it had evaporated milk, covering was sorta raw. Great icetea, cornbread. Service was good. Bummer no separate checks. $18.00 for pot pie. Will not go back unless wife insists.

This has to be one of the best restaurants in Fort Lauderdale. The food is absolutely delicious. And the portions are more than plentiful. The prices are very reasonable. And the service is extraordinary. If there is one thing I would tell the owners of this restaurant it would be to improve the lighting, we sat in the rear and... More
