This was my first time visiting this restaurant after hearing about if from a few friends. It has a very intimate & cozy atmosphere, great music(not loud & overbearing, the service was excellent as the server gave great recommendations, and the food was AMAZING! I had the oysters for an appetizer and branzino for dinner and it was some of the best tasting food I have had. I also had the melt in your mouth mashed potatoes & tasty brussel sprouts. I will definitely be back!

Was there to celebrate my mom’s birthday. I met with the owner who shared the mural on the wall was of his mother so that was nice. There were a few items on the menu that wasn’t available which was why I came specifically but the other dishes that we ordered more than made up for it! The drinks were so divine and they allowed us to switch out one that we didn’t fancy without any problems! We had two younger kids who usually are picky eaters but absolutely finished their meals!!! The music was just right genre and volume! I will be going back!

About the restaurant
Our restaurant's atmosphere is what we would call casual elegance. On our main floor, we have a full dining room, bar, and we call this our "wine bar". The wine bar also has front porch and back patio seating as well. Our wine list has over 100 wines from various regions. We offer multiple bottled wines and a phenomenal selection by the glass as well. Our basement, or as we all know it the pub, has 12 beers on draft, an extensive liquor selection, and a very inviting and comforting atmosphere. Both floors offer the same supper menu, with the exception of the happy hour menu. That is only served in the pub Tuesday-Friday from 4-6. Our third floor is used for overflow seating and private events. Our motto is that when you're here, you're home, and we strive to meet that with every guest. Come in and enjoy a beautiful, local, farm to table meal. We'd love to have you!
