Video from the scene shows heavy, dark smoke as flames burst from the building.
Fire officials say four employees and one patron were able to safely evacuate the restaurant before fire crews arrived.
Firefighters quickly secured a water supply, cleared the structure, and extended hand-lines into the inside.
A second-alarm was issued after the fire made its way into the void space in the attic and started to weaken the structural integrity of the building, fire officials said.
At that point, multiple ladder crews set up for heavy water operations while engine crews were able to set up master streams on the ground to battle the flames.
Crews were eventually able to get the fire control under and remained on-scene overnight mopping up hotspots.
The cause of the fire is under investigation. There are no reports of any injuries at this time.
