Went in for lunch, our waitress was low to greet us, slow to take our order, slow to refill drink glasses, and never did bring a To-Go cup after 15 minutes! The restaurant wasn't all that busy, but she sure didn't think he needed to put out that much energy in the middle of the day. Over Priced, Under Appreciated,... More

The food is just not good. Steak is really fatty. It is just low quality all around and over priced to boot.
