We were looking for a light lunch, and Second Story was perfect. This is a family-run place; Dad is chef and son is waiter; daughter is waitress & hostess. The kids did a great job, answered questions accurately, and provided great service. The food was...More

It was convenient as we were staying at the hotel. Food was just okay, and somewhat overpriced, but this is a touristy area.

Had 2 meals here during our stay. Customer service was very good the food was generous but average. It is certainly convenient for breakfast especially.

Arrived early evening and wanted to have a peaceful meal and came across the Second Story...it is part of a larger, very nice motel suites complex. Nothing fancy, but it is very clean, the food was very savory and the view is SPECTACULAR!

The Chicken Cherry Walnut salad was wonderful. It will be hard to select something else on the next visit because I'll want to order it again. My lunch companions enjoyed their sandwiches, and we all agreed that Second Story will again be on our short-list...More

In 2015, there's a new owner of Second Story Restaurant, and a new menu. The pulled pork sandwich is wonderful, with a sauce made by the owner and his brother and bottled for sale. They have broasted chicken, a great chicken-cherry-walnut-bacon salad, and great fish...More
