Food was truly great! For lunch, though, it was a little expensive. Sandwich was $13 and didn't even include fries. Adding fries, drink, tip brought lunch for one to almost $25.

Took a while to get the food even though the restaurant wasn't that busy. The menu seemed somewhat limited. The food was OK, but not a great value for the price, especially lunch. We didn't hate it, but we probably won't return.
