Thoroughly enjoyed a late lunch after touring the 6th Floor Museum-just a few blocks away. Lovely decor & very professional & welcoming staff. Menu options were terrific & our food was delicious! Can’t say enough about how delightful our lunch was!

Good selection of typical American food. Portions were nice and the food was prepared quickly and to everyone's liking. Our group was 12 people and our waiter took everyone's order without writing anything down - and got it 100% correct !!!
