I gave it an average because our service was less than... It wasn't busy inside when we arrived. We had a large party of about 14. We were seated in the back in a largish room which we occupied in its entirety. It took awhile to get our drinks, thinking maybe the server was overly busy we didn't say anything... More

Service is typically great. Food is usually very good. Reasonable prices for lunch. I've been about five times now when in town and have made it a regular stop.

Our server was very friendly and attentive. The problem we had is that twice we were served items that were cold and had to be returned. There was no manager on site; therefore we could not address. We would not return.
