Joyce says:

You have a good start for your site but I am going to very honest with you, I assume that's why you've submitted your Url, it won't help you any if I just "fluff" you. So put on your hard hat and lets dig in.
__ The site still needs a lot of work, but it has many good points too. For instance, that pizza looked great ( your barrels are nice on the front page except that they have the "jaggies" real bad, so do the two logos. Also on this page you need to put some space between the columns.
__ Other things I observed from the Menu section and Home page only: You have different backgrounds within the same category, this can be very confusing to people.
__ My main objection personally is the use of frames when it isn't really necessary. It is also to your advantage not to use them. You can be found easier in the search engines without them and it is easier to bookmark without them, not to mention you get rid of an ugly gray line. This gray line can be invisible if you feel you can't live without the frames.
__ There are two major things that scream amateur (it's ok to be one you just don't want to scream it <g>) That's the large purple divider line and some of the huge text headings. A nice attractive -- Menu -- would suffice for example. And copyright notices aren't usually the largest things on a page.
__ I like the paddles used for navigation in the menu section; it's clever. They could use a little work on the text though. It's a bit hard to read, and some of it runs into the next paddle.
__ In the salad area you need padding between the sections so the text doesn't butt up against the borders, and I'd make the color bands smaller.
__ Well that's probably enough to get you going for now. If you need help getting rid of jagged edges go to the Cafe and ask, or submit your questions in the letter area, there's a lot of nice folks around here ready to help and assist one another.

Happy designing.
