What a great spot to have dinner with family or friends! Tuna, chicken salad, salads are all awesome! Great selection of beer and wine as well as a full bar!

Nice facility for casual dining. They have selections with something for everyone. Have never had anything here that was not excellent.

Visited for lunch The service was efficient and the food is reasonably priced and delicious. I had the chicken Asian wrap and man was it good. Spouse had the ahi tuna appetizer and it was plentiful. Will definitely go back again

You better take a sweater! Why do places keep the ac so low on a rainy day in October? Must be for the staff cause it's sure not for the customers comfort. Friendly service, food just ok.

This popular place offers good food, very friendly and attentive service (though this time we waited longer than usual to get our food), and reasonable pricing. The atmosphere is nice and the outdoor seating very pleasant. But plan to stand in line a while; we've...More

I search and long for the filet of bisque soup! I really think they should market it and sell it at a specialty grocery store! Not to mention if they’ve ran out of that they have many other tasty soups! I love the chicken salad...More

It would be tricky. The bar area isn't huge and the dining area is tight. Don't know where they'd set you up. Plus, the acoustics can be a little weird. You can hear everyone's conversation, especially in the very back room.
