Peter was an amazing server, he got all our orders right and was very personable! Made our friend’s birthday even better than it could have been. Request Peter and you won’t be disappointed.

Went for lunch while in town. The menu has so many options. Good for vegetarians and those on gluten free diets. Lettuce wraps were great for meeting my low carb needs. Next time I’ll try some of the House made brews!

Great place for a lower-key work lunch. Love that you can get an omelette anytime of day. The chopped salad is delicious. Service is a bit spotty. Sometimes really attentive. Other times not so much.
