Food is nothing special, likely premade and heated in the kitchen. don't expect it to come as ordered, but fixed however the cook feels (inconsistent from visit to visit), Main seating up a narrow spiral staircase.

Located on a busy little corner in the Old City. Bar downstairs and the restaurant is upstairs. We had the Philly Cheesesteak and it was ..... perfect. Side salad instead of fries. Glass of sangria.

Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches very good! Cute place. Service was very poor and we were the only ones in the dining area. It shouldn't take 55 minutes to get four cheesesteak sandwiches made!

Food was good and service was good, and the beer was cold. The overall price is very reasonable. There is ample outdoor seating. and looked like lots of indoor tables as well.

It is dirty, staff does not bother at all and food is cold and filthy. And last but not least, you pay too much for what you get.
