We've always enjoyed the food. It can get busy at times, but that's what happens with good food! They always have delicious breads available to buy and take home with you. It's a good place for just dessert, as well.

Love everything here. Love the corn beef, fries, pickles, rye bread, Cole slaw and potato salad the best. Hamantashin are great to take to go - poppyseed must have - try them they are awesome.
