This place is always so crowded on the weekends but the food can't be beat. Excellent options to chose from. Recommend the salad and soup too!

Wife wasn't happy her scallops didn't have rice or noodles, but they were delicious. I had Salmon, and was perfect. Came quick. Martinis were excellent. Nice light and quick lunch.

Stopped here for breakfast. The folks who run the place are super nice but the food is just so so. Nothing memorable. We had the scromlit and French toast which were adequate.

During a weeks vacation I dined here for breakfast twice. Great staff and great food. Within walking distance from our rental house. No disappointment here.

The ice cream was excellent but you could tell the food was not a priority here. The staff was slow to clean off dirty tables and seemed put out when asked to do so. The staff wanted to serve you the ice cream....that's it.
