My friend and I ate there for my birthday dinner. The french onion soup was really loaded with onions and melty/stretchy cheese.
The maple salmon with rice and squash was very good.
Tiramisu shared dessert was lovely.
I asked for a Hemingway Daiquiri (my new favorite drink) they didn't have all the ingredients but made a valiant effort. It was quite good.

Stopped in for drinks. Ericka was superb as a bartender and hostess. She answered all our questions and even gave us a complementary dish that had been accidentally made by the chef. The food was excellent.

We ate here as a party of 9 for a friends birthday and every one of us was incredibly disappointed in the quality of the food! I had special of pulled pork shepards pie, description sounded great as it was covered in mashed potatoes and smothered in melted cheese. Well whoever made it did not read the description they were given! A pike if dried up veggies and pork was plopped to the side of the plate with another pile of congealed dry mashed potatoes sat next to it. I couldn't find the melted cheese until I realized it was the dried up burnt crusty crunch. It was absolutely lousy!! My friend's salmon was puny, thin and overcooked with a side of dried up rice and a plop of sweet potatoes. Another friend got the shrimp salad complete with RAW shrimp on top that had to be sent back. My granddaughter ordered the kids sliders and immediately complained to me that she could not eat them as the burgers were crunchy! I looked and they were charcoal black on the edges! This was the third bad experience here and I honestly don't know why we keep comi by back, but my entire group decided we've had enough. We are NEVER going back again. Hire a new cook...

The hubs and I enjoyed sharing a plate of wings and a burger. It was a nice experience at the bar. Becoming a staple in our favorite spots!

I read a lot of the reviews and was excited to try your restaurant. Appitizers were good although egg rolls were not hot. We ordered brisket which could have a lot more tender, also the shrimp and chicken marsala. Entrees were ok, but not wonderful. Wine list disappointing. Doug was very helpful and attentive.I'm in the business myself and I like to give an accurate review in order to help the restaurant.
