Food and service couldn't have been better. Wide selection of beer and wine available which you purchased at retail. A $10.00 corkage fee for wine was O.K. but a $5.00 charge to open a bottle of beer seemed way out of line. I returned the...More

A very knowledgeable staff and superior service. Don't let the location (adjacent to a gas station) or venue (inside a wine shop) deter you. A very nice ambience and well prepared food make this a first-rate dining adventure. An extremely varied and eclectic wine selection...More

I accidentally discovered this place when I stopped in for gas, on my way to UM. So this time, on my way to UM, I stopped just for the sandwiches. Their prices are ridiculously reasonable, and the food is very delicious.More
