Small place - 2 rooms/ set apart by a wall. The place needs updating; a little wear, but pretty much clean. Food is tasty, but i don't think I would return.

Super long wait for table and food, not child friendly as advertised, waitress gave me dirty utensils, rushed service, messed up my sons order. When I asked her to correct it, she asked if she could just scrape the sauce off my son's 'plain cheeseburger' I ordered. Super long wait for table and food, not child friendly as advertised, waitress gave me dirty utensils, rushed service, messed up my sons order. When I asked her to correct it, she said it would take too long and asked if she could just scrape the sauce off my son's 'plain cheeseburger' I ordered. We didn't even stay to enjoy the food because service & ambience was so bad! The waitress then suggested we pay for the order she messed up on because we touched it & she couldn't re-serve it! Appalling. I tried to give this place the benefit of the doubt with the horrible service but I draw the line when it comes to my child's food.

This is the old Walker's Pie Shop. The food is great, the kitchen is clean, the staff if friendly and want to please. A wonderful experience to eat here. We felt like we were back in the old Walker's Pie Shop again, only with more exotic and interesting food. We will return. The pear salad was great and a meal in itself.

The menu is very sophisticated and most dishes work well and are very delicious. Some need a little tweek, but overall are good. The Cobb Salad was well balanced and not overdressed. The grilled chicken on the salad was juicy and well seasoned. The tofu frites were excellent. A good alternative to fries. The service was very good.
