You should come for the warm and professional service alone. We didn't want heavy meals and there were plenty of lighter side options. Our food was delicious and a nice value. Drinks are a little pricey but not outrageous.

I hadn’t been in for dinner in awhile but the owner always remembers me and welcomes me back. My friends and I chose the $30 3 course menu and we cleaned our plates! Generous portions, excellent value. I am going back soon!

The service was excellent but the meal was disappointing. I had the salmon which was very good but the sides of nondescript brown rice and slightly mushy vegetables were barely lukewarm. My husband had the coconut shrimp which was slightly overdone. We enjoyed our appetizers...More

Quaint, but a bit cramped on a weekend eve. Food was decent. Service was friendly, but with a few mis-steps that made for a slightly annoying experience.

Reliable, dependable, and solid. Just a great restaurant run by great folks who go out of their way to accommodate. We usually try to eat outside if the weather cooperates, as the scenery is "entertaining". We love the wine list and owner Scott's amazing memory...More
