Went with my family and was surprised by the quality of the food. The service was great. I enjoyed the Skillet and my son enjoyed his pie, which was quite large. Will visit again in the future.

We had the fish and chips but I had a Caesar salad instead of fries. My friend had a chicken Caesars salad. They gave a good helping and was delicious.

The atmosphere... Outstanding. Service.... top notch. Food amazing, it is wonderful not to have food that is over-salted, full of flavor and Portion servings are just perfect! Excellent place to hang out as a couple or as a group.
