    Customers say: “Two coworkers and myself just stopped by for lunch and had two appetizers, two salads and pasta and a beverage for just a bit over $50. The server visited the table often to make sure glasses where full and did it in a way you could hardly even tell they came to the table! They have outside seating in the spring and summer which is great considering the breeze and sun outside!” –Evian D.

For a more "formal" (but not really formal) dining experience, go up to the second floor. They have a lot more tables and can accommodate large groups. They even have a rooftop available when the weather warms up and who doesn't love outdoor dining?! It's a hot commodity during the summer.” –Rebecca S.
