We have been coming pretty regularly since they renovated, food is always good. They have a great French Onion soup, good happy hour specials, the flat breads are great. Awesome outdoor space.

I am sorry to say our experience at brunch today was below average at best. Our reservation was at 1:30. If they are not going to adequately replenish everything for that seating time, they should not offer it. Food was barely acceptable. Not a lot...More
