Wow, what a great place to eat!!! The dining area is a little short on space but the food is top notch. They also offer a nice selection of beer from various spots in NC!

My family and I ate lunch here. It is one of those places that you might not stop for without the aid of some online reviews. From the outside, it isn't much to look at. Inside, the place is charming and fun. Service is friendly...More
