    Get a reservation. Crowded at the entrance. Great atmosphere and layout but it feels cramped at places. Good food. Very vegetarian, vegan, and nut allergy friendly. Over all good experience.

    Weird decor, locally sourced ingredients, and great food. The farmers platter gets you massive food per dollar, but I'd recommend any of the winter stews (if it's winter, of course).

    The brie and onion jam farmers bread was fantastic and I am normally not a cheese person. The crispy shrimp was a good portion. I highly recommend the apple pie as well!

    I was wondering what a $15 Reuben would taste like, since that's double the price most restos charge. I now know. Awesome sandwich! (More than) ample corned beef and HUGE flavor.
