This is a new location for a very popular eating establishment. Newly built in 2016, it offers a larger bar and more seating. Parking isn't adequate but florist next door allows for overflow parking. There food is plentiful and inexpensive. Good service and friendly staff.

Haddock picata was more like fish and chils without the chips, fried haddock with too much batter and tasteless sauce. A Chicken marsala was better but not a lot of chicken. Nice desserts and a decent wine list. But overall not worth a $200.00 for...More

Food here is great and the service is friendly. It is a smaller, cozy place with a family feel which isn't surprising because it is family owned and operated. The portions are HUGE which is great so you can have something to take home
