Had dinner for my birthday with family. Good kid meal choices. Also had a wonderful deal for 4 different plates on Thursday night. Your choice of app, salad or soup, entree and dessert for very reasonable price- we took home leftovers. Great server as well!

A small, neat bar. Locals really good menu. It's creative but not inappropriate for the location. Philly cheese steak using prime rib eye. Excellent beer choices Service great.
