Saw the reviews, decided to give it a try. Let's just say that the food was not bad - the kitchen is trying! The mussels were quite good, in fact (loved the crushed almonds, but how about a bowl for the shells), and the burger...More

Stopped by while in the area. Had a bowl of soup and Pecan Chicken Salad. Both were excellent. You order at the counter and then have a seat. The food took about 10mins. The price is a little heavy for lunch without a waitress. However...More

This local hangout has great food, but as a local, I grow tired of this menu. This is also where the local drunks hang out and never leave their bar stools. Staff is friendly and attentive. Quite noisy and needs drapes or a rug to...More
