I will be back. I don't know what took me so long to come here in the first place. Everything I ordered tonight was top notch. The best part is that I don't have to do the dishes!

Great, quiet lunch spot but it's well known, so make a reservation. I can only speak for the spinach quiche and the pulled pork, but they were delish! Expedient and pleasant service. Great atmosphere. Check it out

The she crab soup is superb and the sauted soft shell crab is unique. Service is excellent in a cozy, relaxed environment.
