Ate here while visiting my sister in Norfolk. They had a great variety and food was very good. Service was great and the place was very busy. Will definitely go again on my next visit.

Our family of seven ranging in age from 5 to 75 enjoyed a wide variety of foods from hamburgers to salads. Everything was delicious and the salad portions generous. The service was excellent. This was our first visit, but we will be back.

Out of the hustle and bustle in a one way street neighborhood area, off the beaten path. The only "semi" negative thing I can say is parking can be tricky. We went early on a Friday before Easter and lucked out with a back alley...More
