    Thought we would get dinner menu at 2:30 pm on Sunday but ended up with brunch menu. Food was mediocre and overpriced at best, limited selection and poor quality. I ordered the only thing on the menu that i could eat (a caesar salad with blackened shrimp). The lettuce was browning and nearly too old to serve, the shrimp was scant - 4 pieces - and tasteless - NOT blackened. And despite my clearly stating my aversion to mayonnaise, the dressing had mayonnaise in it. The waiter was kind enough to bring balsamic but even that was tooo mustardy. I ate less than half of my very overpriced salad. My tablemates were less picky than me but overall found their burgers to be pretty meh. I would not eat there again and do not recommend .

    We were greeted warmly by the person who was also our waitperson. The menu contained many tempting options. The drinks were amazing. We were treated like family and enjoyed our experience.

    Server apologized just a few times too many for being "the only one working today" and seemed harried. Never checked on us, never refilled waters. My food was disappointing and too greasy. Place was more of a dive than I expected.
