Had the sampler for 2. My fiance and I loved it. Prices are great and the service was really great. Our server was very helpful too. You should eat here. Nice hole in the wall tavern/grill feel.

Good food, Atmosphere is great. A bit of a local hangout. Part of the charm of this place is the old building. Staff make a big difference, they are friendly, outgoing and helpful. A great local spot that has a lot of character.
