I often stop by this neighborhood when traveling on 91. This was my first visit here. It's a classic neighborhood bar with very good food. We enjoyed burgers, soups, salads... all tasted fine and decent-sized portions. Nice welcome and friendly waiter.

The restaurant is very small, warm and cozy. The service, food and ambiance is excellent. There's a Pub next door that is part of the restaurant and it's always busy, however, none of the noise is heard in the restaurant.
