Great spot for lunch or dinner. Small free parking lot which was very handy as we went shopping downtown afterwards

Dropped by on a Thursday afternoon hoping to have drinks and then perhaps dinner on the deck only to be informed that the deck was for food service only despite the fact that there was only ONE table occupied. Management lost out this time.
