Went for a communion party. Nice buffet spread of cold and hot entrees. Would go back for dinner if in the area.

They have an excellent chef with very good menu choices, but the bar tender really screwed up. We went there because they are the only place that serves Sierra Nevada Side Car. The first one was great, but after that they served me the wrong beer and insisted that the first beer was wrong. Even though the hostess claimed that... More

Ate out side on the porch. That's a nice spot if it's warm out. The honey mustard was spot on and same with the chicken tenders. Kids went bonkers for them.. My burger was also very nice. I saw some ones pasta meal and the bowl was pretty full.

The day after the election 2 of us went here for lunch. They ALWAYS have great and inexpensive lunch specials but this day I got one of my long-time faves, chicken fingers. I know it is silly but they are deliciously crisp and perfectly cooked. Also their fries are wonderful. Friend had a large salad which he liked. Always good... More

Decided to give it another try even though all of my favorites are gone. Staff has always been friendly and good. Ordered the Mexican salad to replace the deleted taco salad, my past favorite. What a disappointment!! Some scattered corn and black beans on bed of lettuce with taco chips around the perimeter. Good thing I added the grilled chicken... More

Our party of four had a lovely casual dinner at The Exchange. We sat on the porch on a lovely late summer evening. The selections were varied for a casual dinner--soups, salads, sandwiches, burgers and some specials. This is not fine dining but it is good food at a fair price. The servers were friendly and attentive without being overbearing.... More

Was a frequent customer until they changed the menu. Taco salad, chicken burger, and crab cakes are gone. The replacements are fair. The staff is friendly and makes the bar a fun place to be. Outside dining is a plus.
