The salmon was absolutely TOP SHELF! Probably the best seafood I have had in Lawrence…Another wonderful surprise is the number of Gluten Free options on the menu.  The GF pasta was a penne pasta and absolutely delicious.  They also have a chocolate flourless dessert that is to die for.

Ended up here for brunch on Father’s day. Sat at the bar and watched them make fresh squeezed orange juice and other concoctions. Their bloody mary got rave reviews from my other half. The service was fast and friendly. The food was delicious. Will definitely be back for dinner.
