We had lunch here. Food was delicious. My husband had the"special" which was a sliced steak sandwich with outstanding home made chips. I ordered the arugula salad and had it topped with the sliced steak. ..excellent. Our server Schuyler was perfection. Thanks.

Nice atmosphere, large restaurant, interesting salads. Reasonably priced. I had a salad with warm goat cheese and pears. My husband had the house salad with mushrooms added. Service was good.
