Terrible food and dirty. Bad service. The only good part of the restaurant was the outdoor seating. The building now houses the Town Tavern - which is wonderful.

Now known as MK's comfort food, don't let the name change fool you. The sanitation rating is not great and the food is only passable. The french onion soup came with a slice of processed cheese floating on top that never did melt. The fries...More

The patio is inviting and pleasant. We ordered a salmon cake sandwich and the catfish platter. Both were OK, not bad, but nothing special. Service was a slow and it wasn't very busy.

When arriving, we were told we would have a 20 minute wait which ended up being one and a half hours. The food was fine enough, but that's probably because every time we told him we'd like to order something he "advised us not to"....More

We were seated outside immediately by either the owner or manager. We ordered burgers medium but they were well done. The fries were just okay. The kitchen was slow. The "owner/manager" keep interupting us and it was almost intrusive. We would not go back.
