Happy hour has several choices of wine by the glass for $4.00 which can be enjoyed on the patio. There are some happy hour food choices also. A very nice place to relax on a warm evening

The food was very good but menu limited. Staff friendly and attentive. We were very disappointed to see a $12 corkage fee for a bottle that had a twist off cap.

Beware of this place. They charge a $12 corkage fee for any bottle of wine you order with your meal. What kind of restaurant does that? Only a dishonest and deceitful establishment. It is buried on the menu and the waiter never brought it to...More
