We stopped in for lunch. The vibe was relatively low-key with few patrons around 12:45 on a Thursday. The seating is interesting - couches. I was surprised by the number of sandwiches, burgers and appetizers - all of the pub grub variety. It was hard...More

Food is good, not great. Same with the service. I think it is hit or miss. We've been there several times and think it is just OK overall. My kids aren't particularly picky eaters, and they love to go out to eat, but even they...More

Love the couch atmosphere. Food is good (not great). Waitresses have been very friendly. TVs on the wall are small, so watching a game depends upon your location in the restaurant. We found this place when another restaurant was full, and we'll keep going back.

This is a place to try. We went there for lunch to try the restaurant. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Walking in you see the fireplace/ fire pit, which looks great. We are led to our seating area, tables and love seats, very inviting....More
