This restaurant has great Italian food. Try the chicken Parmesan it is excellent. Tony also makes awesome homemade sausage. Dinners come with soup salad and another side. They also have great desserts.

Needs updating, but doesn't affect taste. Service a bit slow but worth what you order. Bar available. Nice family place. Right in center of town and parking difficult but nice walk to restaurant

The food was good when it finally got to our table. The wait seemed especially long since it wasn't a busy night. The restaurant could really use some basic cleaning and updating in the furniture/ paint department.

The Birdcage has one of the best fish fries in town. It was very reasonably priced and you get a lot for your money. When busy, expect to wait a bit, but the food is worth it.
