Our server, Lara, was very accommodating. The table was small for our group of seven, and she efficiently arranged for us to move to a larger space. The food and service was wonderful. We ordered several different entrees, and all were absolutely delicious.

Headed to Second Street after church, and barely rolled out of there after a wonderful meal, including a free dessert. Our selection for the brunch main course was sold out, but I doubt you can go wrong with anything. We sure didn't.
