Three of us had dinner here and enjoyed it. We each ordered different dishes and all of them were tasty, although not outstanding. The service was very efficient and prices were about average for this area.

ManGaby prepared a dinner for my large group and everything went so well. We started with a salad bar, then had a choice of 4 entrees and dessert. Their menu has great options as well. We'll be back!
