Found this recommended on yelp and so visited this evening. Outstanding food. Quirky menu with great choices, even for the pescatarians in our party. Brilliant, friendly service and we weren't rushed to leave the table. Highly recommend a visit for dinner.

Thank you DLRSW! I'm stoked you had a great meal and got a chance to try the Osso Buco and the lamb spam since those items are not always on the menu. Check back with us later this spring when we will have a bunch...More

I love that this place serves excellent quality and extremely tasty comfort food. Great steak, pork chops, fried chicken, meatloaf etc. All cooked to perfection. Delicious tasting side dishes and excellent service. All at very reasonable prices. Will be going back here again and again...More

Salty food: octopus and Brussels sprouts. We also had the sturgeon but they put too many thing with it, which was overwhelming. The fried chicken was a disappointment, we couldn't find a pleasant taste. Noisy. We wouldn't go back.
