Great for a quiet dinner--NOT for big events

We frequented this restaurant when we were engaged and the food was always great. The staff is friendly, but the owners are scattered. DO NOT plan an event at this locale. We had our wedding reception here and there were MANY things that went awry. First and foremost our deposit was lost. I should have seen this as a sign to move on--I had to bring a copy of the canceled check to prove that we had paid. We had to redo the table seating for the guests at the last minute because the owner did not actually have the tables she promised (said she had 10 person tables and ended up having a smattering of odd numbered tables round and rectangular). The day of the wedding they were not prepared and were running around like crazy people. Lastly and most importantly, they did not feed a whole table of our guests or our DJ and photographer (whom we paid for per head in addition to the guests). The table were relatives so they did not want to upset my husband and I. When they asked where their food was the owner simply said the food was gone and there was no more!! They have a full kitchen and as this was THEIR error they should have gone into the kitchen to make more! Also we had 3 guests not show so food quantity should not have been an issue. The owner acted like none of this happened and did not even apologize for not feeding a table of 9 and two vendors!! Overall, BAD service and they treat their wait-staff horribly. Good for a nice dinner out...head my warning and do not plan an event at this location!!

Overall
Good food, quirky ambience

Food is consistently good. Sauces and ingredients are fresh, well balanced and flavorful. A family business that is all together quirky, tacky, and homey. The owners live there with their rather large family. Mom uses a good portion of the bar to do bills and business books. The bar looks a bit like a messy desk on one end with stacks of envelopes, pens, a phone, some personal items, and empty glasses. Dad���s often there in the evening drinking wine. The young children are at the bar every night, as it serves as their living room where they watch TV, eat, and snub the patrons. If you���re eating there during winter months, be sure to bring a warm jacket and hat. You���ll want to wear them as you eat. The building has no central heat, only a fireplace that heats an area of 10ft. So no matter when you���re eating there, it���s freezing. Dingy, quirky, cluttered, oddly homey, you���ll either appreciate its uniqueness or hate it with a passion.
