First off let me say the service was awesome.
Dina was a great server; knowledgeable, fun and attentive!
Side salads had a perfect vinaigrette, Jerk scallops were unbelievable and so was the fried chicken! I swear the chicken was a half a bird! It was a huge portion. My mistake was no leaving room for the desserts we had to walk by on the way out. This restaurant is busy all the time cuz it's damn good!
What's not to love with attention to detail in food and service?

My husband and I go here a lot and I also go to a lot of business meetings here. The food is great. I love breakfast and the fact I can get it in the afternoon on Friday! They have a great omelet. They also have a nice patio that's is right on the trail!

The food here is fantastic! The first day was there for Happy Hour where drinks are cheap and apps are like half price! Actually went back with the kids for dinner the same day. Get this, $5.00 kids means with a drink! Wednesday night was awesome as it is pasta night and I had the Chicken Parm which was to die for. It is so good, it is busy most nights but usually only a 10 minute wait and there are benches outside. I'm on vacation but the locals know!
Just great food at great prices, you will not be disappointed!
