This has been a go to regular dining spot for many years. We love the place and always get a decent meal for very reasonable price. No fancy hoopla but clean, good service and a community winner

My wife and I went there with another couple who are new friends. All of us had a great time, getting to know each other, and having good food at the same time.

Hi Sandra. Is it this Sunday 10/4/15? If so, yes we can seat you in the loft at 1:00pm but not at noon. So if everyone in your group is good with stairs and a 1:00pm start time, then no problem. Thank you! Don White... More
