Right on the main drag in Fish Creek. 2 levels including outdoor seating. It appears to be newer, it's very nice, almost upscale. And most importantly, food is fresh and timely.

Love, love, love the perch sandwich and fries. Pair it with the ice tea and a splash of cherry juice and you will have a great lunch. Nice atmosphere and consistently good food are what keeps us coming back year after year.

We were so impressed with our first dinner that we returned for two more dinners. Every meal was delicious! We highly recommend the fish tacos, squash soup (seasonal), pork chop, apple pie, and dessert trio.
