    Fantastic experience with a great selection of food. Appetizers were great. The eggplant chip nachos were delicious and the tots were just the right amount of crunchy. I had the burger which was massive and cooked just right. The Atlantic Salmon had the perfect sear, flake and finish. Do highly recommend. Outside seats ad fire-pit.

    Excellent food, great service, and welcoming to our dog Max. Had some fantastic beers and felt wonderful to get out of the house during the pandemic in a safe outdoor environment. A bit pricey, but hey, it’s worth it.

Had a fabulous waiter who followed all the COVID rules and advised us what to do. He gave us a heads up on last call and kitchen closing time. We had another beautiful evening on their patio.

    We had a very nice dinner on the patio Friday night. They’re following all of the current COVID practices in a comfortable way. The food was delicious and we noticed and liked that they’re hand crafting cocktails and not pouring from a batch in these times. The crab salad sandwich and burger were on point. We’ll be back!

    Brunch offerings were incredible! The omelets were perfectly cooked--my companion and I were gold-star members of the Clean Plate Club. The drinks were very tasty too. Because of the cold weather, mine were warm--Irish coffee and a hot Bourbon cider. YUM! I'll be back here very soon to try the rest of the menu.

    Our party of 7 received our main courses in waves with portions of the meals luke warm. Would not recommend veggie burgers - barely hung together (very mushy) even after sending back. One wait staff for the entire room, and he had a very bad cough. Because the restaurant is in an old fire house, heating was poor and music too loud. Would think this is a great after-work happy-hour place but needs improvement to do a good lunch business. Received 10% off check for inconvenience.

    This newish r restaurant has just opened its beautiful upstairs room for dining. The building is in an old fire station. The upstairs windows are tall and elegant. They have added a bar as well, which was populated by folks who in warm weather had drunk and dined on their patio. That raised the noise level to moderate. The menu is limited but good--comfort food.
