Cozy place does get pretty busy. Kids love coming here for the burgers! I especially love their wings with the celery blue slaw.

Although having to wait 30 minutes, it was a great experience. Had a beer and sampled a few while waiting. We had a great personable server. The vegan enchiladas were delicious and my family had wild caught salmon that was delicious too! Would definitely return😍

On the positive side my wife's chicken dinner was well done, good and we both liked it. It's a unique bohemian place with its own style. Good beer menu, service and atmosphere. I had the brisket meatloaf and it was warm at best and not...More
