Get the The Perfect Couple, it's a Ember Royal and a malt! The place is great. What's nice is you can ask for fruit or a salad, or hash brown or baked potato instead of fries. The malts can be shared .

We were there for brunch. Food was low average and wait staff was lacking in training and manners. THIS RESTAURANT IS NOT HANDICAPPED ACCESSIBLE. Restrooms are in the basement and there is no room to maneuver in the men's room.
