Lots of food options from soup and salad to large grilled entrees. We had a variety of meals as the six of us met for lunch. Everyone liked their food. The place gets busy at lunch but the staff was efficient. No complaints.

OMG! Lobster tacos! They are delicious as is all the food I have tried in this very nice casual restaurant. You walk up to the counter and place your order, get a beeper and help yourself to the drink you ordered. The prices are moderate,

A good pick for brunch, with a nice patio...but expect to wait. On the weekend you can expect the line to order to wrap around the front of the restaurant.
