Everybody in our group enjoyed the food, service and vibe of this Bistro. We ordered a variety of things from the menu and were pleased with the gamut. Our only complaint was that it was super busy, but that's a good thing, right? Plus, the...More

The best fish and chips! Delicious homemade clam chowder. Even make their burger buns homemade! Candied jalapeno burger had the perfect amount of heat to sweet. Very very good food hands down. Highly recommend stopping in for lunch. We will definitely be back!

Stopped here one evening after a long day driving. Food and server were terrific. Varied and unique menu and I think the dishes were exceptional. Not the usual fare - which I found refreshing. I would eat there every day!
