We went for a late lunch and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Food was excellent. My husband had a fried bologna sandwich and said it was delicious. The restaurant is an old hardware store converted, very interesting.

I attended my high school reunion here last fall. The food was great. The atmosphere was super since they have a huge room separate from the rest of the restaurant for a party.

Everything they have is good! My favorite is the chicken salad, but they also have great burgers and pub chips. Wonderful deserts! I attended a special event there recently at which they provided a "taco bar," which was also excellent.
