Waiter and service was very cordial & prompt. 2 of us had the Reuben which was excellent, one had the perch sandwich and one had a burger. All were excellent and we thought they were reasonably priced.

A group of us met here for dinner and were pleased. The server was very helpful and accommodating. Drinks were good. Atmosphere was decent as well. They have a nice outdoor eating area too. No complaints here
