Our menus are eclectic, seasonal, expanding farm to table and organic practices and frequently changing.
Live music and repeat local guests fill our restaurant, and it is a true dining & social experience.
Our dinner day part is our largest revenue period overall, but our weekend breakfast/brunch is hugely popular and in terms of covers it out shines our busiest dinner nights, so it is not to be overlooked.

We do have some untouchable items on the menus but many that can be often changed and or improved upon. Daily and nightly specials utilizing local farm, sea and vendors resources are required
