Quaint little restaurant in the Riverside area. Have visited several times and, each time, the service has been very good as well as the food. Desserts are very, very good -- especially the oatmeal/chocolate chip cookes. I have visited during the lunch hours -- both on weekdays and on Saturdays. Parking is very limited in front of the restaurant but... More

The food is good, the drinks are cold and the service is fun. If you are there for happy hour, try to get on the upstairs patio bar where a good time is guaranteed.

This is a small, but always busy place. Fish tacos are awesome! You can eat and then walk up the street for ice cream. I've not had anything bad there. Prices are reasonable too.

This place was recommended on the internet as being very good. I and one other friend visited on the recommendation and were promptly seated despite being busy. We were put upstairs with the bar, where one server and the bartender were taking care of all the tables upstairs. Despite the upstairs area being not as packed and busy as downstairs,... More

The Happy Hour there is awesome!! Great service. I absolutely love how the bar is located upstairs. Their burrito's are huge, and the steak quesadilla is something serious.

My daughter had gone here with some college friends & insisted I try it. I was pleasantly surprised. It's in a unique part of Jax, with a few shops you can walk around. The food had great flavor! I had the fish tacos and loved them. Make sure you try the guacamole because it's delicious.

Very busy location both at lunch and dinner, but worth the wait. The meat loaf sandwich is one of the best I've ever had. I paired it with their chili slaw (unusual combo of ingredients) and was not disappointed. Be sure and finish your meal with a piece of peanut butter pie...amazing! Service can be inconsistent.

Sandwich fillings were not generous. Chicken salad was only average. Have found other lunch locatons for similar cost offered more value
