The food and the service is just great in this place. You feel at home as soon as you walk through the door. It is a very relaxed place. The French fries are out of this world.

It did pay off. The food was excellent and the service even better. They have hired some teenagers that are very attentive and super friendly. Not that the other staff are not friendly, but they were always so busy, I'm glad they chose the right people for the job. Everything was good and I even try the chicken pecan roll... More

We vouched to leave the touristy hustle of Newburyport and go beyond to a hidden gem! Lots of locals and the food was fabulous! My grilled Mahi Mahi tacos were amazing-I chose to have both the pineapple jalapeño salsa and the cilantro sour cream!!! My daughter had a great BYO burger which she thoroughly enjoyed! I vouched for the hand... More
