  • review rating 5  First timer and best steak I've ever had! Perfectly done, melt in your mouth delicious. Spinach and corn were wonderful and potatoes cooked just right. Waitress was fun, and so accommodating. Everyone so nice. We will be back.

  • review rating 5  My boyfriend & I had an incredible meal here last night! We found it on a whim (looking for someplace that served a burrata appetizer) and were so happy we did. We sat at the bar, and Greta the bartender took amazing care of us. We ordered a bottle of wine and never had to refill our glasses. She went above and beyond to make us feel welcome — like we were old friends going over for dinner. We don’t live nearby but we will definitely be making the hour+ trip to visit this fabulous establishment and Greta again.
