I really enjoyed this restaurant. Nothing fancy, just a good menu, tasty food and friendly service. The spinach salad was ultra fresh and the mediterranean chicken was awesome.

The food was excellent and the service very good. My daughter had the chocolate peanut butter cheesecake which she loves. I don't even like cheesecake and I thought it was pretty good.

We were visiting Excelsior Springs and a local suggested we try this place. I got a chicken entre and loved it! They also have a large selection of wines to choose from.

Located in a historical downtown district. Bistro type atmosphere with original wood floors, tin ceiling, and brick walls. Owned by two sisters who have brought great flair to their menu with family recipes and ingenuity that appeals to everyone. Serving steaks, pastas, burgers, seafood, and homemade desserts, you will want to come back over and over.
