Great food but the atmosphere is lacking! Need to update the decor and give it some pizzaz! The lunch and dinner menus both offer a great variety! I’ve never had a bad meal here!

Came for dinner - not as good as lunch. I tried to order side salad and they would not let me get side price, they also did not have several things on menu. Food was okay but should be more customer friendly

Great entrees, staff and atmosphere. Love the location, small dining rooms, and menu section. The steaks, crab and shrimp entrees are wonderful.

Food was excellent, service was prompt and friendly. Portions were large for the price. Ham and pea soup was awesome. The veal Marsala and twin filets with pasta were both terrific. We would order them both again. The homemade desserts were great.
