This was a really nice place to sit quietly and enjoy the company and food. Everything we tried from appetizers to main meal was very good and reasonably priced. Not sure if they take reservations since we went at a time it was pretty quiet.

Stopped in around 930 on a Friday nite...music duo was playing-they were really good. We had calamari and fish/chips. Calamari was super hot because of the peppers. Fish/chips was delicious-not too greasy and perfectly crisp batter and for flesh-YUM!
