We were staying near Nick's and decided to stop by for an early lunch. Our service was good, the atmosphere was casual and comfortable, and our food was fine.

Craig at the bar is fantastic. I recommend the blackened chicken strawberry salad. We were also pleased with their wine selection.

Dog friendly on the patio outside. Got a surprising amount of food for the price, and it tasted good. I got the egg salad sandwich with tomato soup and my sister got a chicken quesadilla. My main complaint is that the service was slow (it...More
