Good local spot for easy, no fuss dinner. Good food, from the open steak sandwich to the special catch of the day. Peter is a good chef as well as a most hospitable host.

Turn right and you're in a great little neighborhood sports bar. Tasty food, big drinks and beer on tap. Turn left and enjoy fine dining, attentive service and good wine selection.

I eat here often - both lunch and dinner. Daily lunch specials at very favorable prices include delicious soups. A regular bar menu is supplemented by plentiful specials.

This is one of our "go to" places for a quick and delicious meal. Peter and Kim are wonderful owners and take pride in their place. The food is prepared beautifully and the home made desserts are to die for. Bartenders are usually pretty chatty...More
