Love, Love, Love this place! Food is excellent, friendly staff, and food comes out quickly. The location attracts lots of locals. Weekends expect to wait for a table, but in my opinion it's worth the wait.

I'm not sure, looks like first come first served. I'd call and check--especially for a larger group they would probably take a reservation. Very customer service oriented.
