Pleasantly surprised me as the outside had me concerned as it looked almost like a food truck or trailer but inside we're cozy tables and a warm owner/cook. I believe Glen was his name and personally went over some of his creative specials. I had...More

Overpriced for the lack of ambiance. Food was good, not great. Service was EXTREMELY slow for a Saturday night (8/27). No apology or explanation from server, although she was pleasant. No manager visited our table. One and done. We won't even try breakfast.
