Our Visitors Just Love Our Food

& much more in a warm friendly atmosphere

Live music (blues), good food, cool atmosphere. Stumbled upon this place looking for something different to try and was pleasantly surprised.

Kid-friendliness: Have a basic kids menu, might be a good idea to bring ear protection for the little ones.

Parking: Mostly compact parking, but it's free and ample.
