Great Service

Based on the food this restaurant would be average but the service is what makes it good. Very friendly and smiley waitress who improves the experience. I have been a few times and always had the same experience.

I order my favorite meal shrimp alfredo and they took forever to bring it. When I got my plate I could tell buy just looking it wasn't going to be good. The pasta was over cooked and the shrimp didn't even taste good!!! How can you mess up shrimp? I told the waitress the food wasn't good and they didn't... More

I wasn't that impressed by the selections offered, or by the value for your money. I certainly could have made a better meal.

This was one of my favorite spots. On my last visit, it was very disappointing. The menu had changed along with the staff and the service was poor. After being seated and waited for 15 minutes for a server, we decided to leave. The previous manager is now at Cascadia and he was all about customer service and was great... More

This is a casual quick restaurant where you order first and then take a seat. The traditional foods are a cheesy potato/corn casserole, rice, green salad and barbecue pork, chicken or fish. Their curry hot sauce is fiery, but good. The service is simple and the open air restaurant was the perfect spot for lunch.

I like the food and the ambience. I would visit there again. I don't like how it was close to the road.

This is an outdoor restaurant on a very busy and noisy street. A large group of us were there on a Friday night, around 6:30, and were the only patrons. The initial service was fine, 2 servers, drinks fairly quick, but the food orders took almost 2 hours. The food was acceptable, 1 steak was so overdone you could have... More

Though I only dined here on one occasion, I recall the fish and chips being a great meal. The atmosphere is also good for lunch meetings or simply catching up with friends.
