This restaurant is a fun locally owned place to go with great comfort food. The portions are large at reasonable prices. They have great daily specials. You have to get the banana pudding (to share). Excellent service- great for families.

We are located in historic Jackson Square. This property once housed Jackson Square pharmacy. After 55 years in the same family this property became available because the previous owners wished to retire. We were lucky to get it. We renovated and tried to keep as much of the original charm as possible. We hope you like it.
