The Roma steak looked good on the menu but when it came out there was liquid everywhere on the plate. Not the semi red run you would get with a piece of meat cooked to medium.. It was overcooked and I'm not sure what they did to it to do that to the entire plate. The mushroom was okay. The... More

Nice place; sometimes a little noisy. Food is good, sometimes have nice specials. Servers are competent and don't rush you.

I love to eat hear after the movie, one stop parking for both. I highly recommend the chicken fajita rollups or one of the steaks. The mini desserts are to die for. Just enough to satisfy you.
