    Established in 1866

    • Loved it so much we went 5 times in 2 weeks. The staff is so friendly. Debbie gave us a tour of the entire building. Beautiful! And the kitchen is more than accommodating when I needed modifications for my dietary needs. I am on Ideal Protein diet.

    • This is a must. Best fish tacos, unique french fries and juicy perfectly cooked burgers. Came upon this beautiful restaurant by accident and feeling lucky. Honestly one of the best lunches I have had in a long time. Wish I lived closer. Megan, our waitress was full of information and recommendations while providing excellent service. Historic building and great ambiance.
