Had a good simple lunch here today while visiting the Art Show across the street. A good choice. We had the chicken wrap sandwich with salad split for two, cost including tip was $15. The service was good and friendly. Place fun and ambiance nice.

Expected better. Was told several items on the menu were not available that day. Ordered the calamari which was sad compared with Tonto's . The potato soup was warm and ok. The salad was also ok. The bill was as much as a lunch at Tonto would be, without the view, the excellent servers and not as good food.

Food was good. Seated in minutes, but we saw elderly customers having to stand while waiting for a seat. It would cost very little to put four chairs by the wall at the front door. Would be a great service.

Stopped in for lunch. Fireplace was nice & service was great. We had a french dip and a turkey burger. Both were excellent.

Went for dinner with friends. Atmosphere is very inviting. Prices are a bit high but not unreasonable. Burger was very good. Ribs done well. Fish and chips were very good. Nice bar. Waitress was excellent. I recommend.

Had family lunch on the day after Christmas. Did not have a reservation and the restaurant was almost completely filled. They found a table for us and apologized for potential wait time until served. Not a problem since they were very attentive and we were promptly served drinks. Food was very good and we did not wait too long. The... More

Called in during our visit to the christmas festival, food looked good and reasonably priced. We only wanted a coffee however. One latte' and one double espresso, at least they tasted of coffee but at over €10 for the two! Not worth it.

Calamari was not crisp and was rubbery. Wine is around $12 a glass with $3 off for happy hour. Waiter was nice, patio has nice heaters.

This was a perfect place to hang out and enjoy a great sandwich and salad. I highly recommend this place! Our waitress was fun and well informed. The owner stopped by the table to see how we were doing - that is rare. You won't be sorry.
