Great location--beautiful downtown Warrenton. Friendly and outgoing waitress. Great air conditioning relief on a hot day. Delicious fish tacos! Nothing for me to complain about!

I had a party of 5 and we had a good dinner, a small mishap with mine but no big deal. Our Waitress was really busy but she made sure we were taken care of. Casual and fun

We went here on our last day in Virginia (visiting friends). It was a great little bistro in the heart of "downtown", the fried pickles were tasty, and the portions were huge. Not too pricey!!
