Quaint little restaurant that had excellent chicken salad sandwiches and salad. My boyfriend had The Moby Dick and he said it was great too. It is definitely a place we will seek out on our next visit.

My whole family enjoys this place. The menu is not large but it covers all the bases and it has some gems! The hangover hash browns are my go to meal. The banana peppers offer a slight kick of flavor...not heat. The place runs well....More
