Testimonials

Wow! We just finished eating here for the first time and will definitely be back. Delicious food and adorable atmosphere. The owner, Shawn, and his family were immediately friendly and welcoming. He made the rounds to each table to chat and show food plates as he delivered them. You can tell they put a lot of love into each plate. They have seasonal menus and today we shared the lobster bomb and apple strudel cinnamon French toast. Amazing combination of flavors in both dishes. We also noticed the quality of the water and the bread; everything was high quality here and we can't wait to try the rest of the menu!

The food here was amazing, and Shawn added a personal touch to the service that you just can't beat - shook our hands, and took the time to talk to us and get to know us a bit. I loved that. I had the lobster bomb and it was out of this world. Loved the atmosphere, and it truly felt like a place where all people are welcome to come together and experience the joy of great food. Well worth it.
