Found this by accident, but it will be our regular stop going north and south. Very friendly staff, good food, We both had steaks and they came with all the fixings. The salad was cold and the dressing fresh. It is a repeat visit.

Stopped there on a road trip and was not disappointed. Appletini was delicious. I had the fish tacos which were excellent. My sister-in-law had the haddock dinner, also very good. Nice atmosphere, though a bit noisy. Great waitress.
