Three of us went for what we hoped was a nice evening meal in the restaurant. The service was horrendous, failed to provide drinks ordered, food was terribly poor, I had fish cakes that frankly were frozen fish cakes and well I did not eat them.

Nothing special, the service was good, the food very average. I would not make a special trip here. There are places easier to get to with far better food. The Dining room itself felt like a school cafeteria. The furniture left a lot to be desired.

The food was adequate, and the prices were fair. What we found lacking was any warmth or atmosphere. I would recommend it if you did not want to go out, but if you want to have a nice meal with some good atmosphere, go else where.

We stayed at the crowne plaza and planned to go to dinner at moa. It got late so we decided to try north. Had spinach artichoke dip, Caribbean jerk chicken, and Philly cheesesteak. All were great! I was full before entrees arrived!!! Loved the surprise! Service was great. Glad to have an attentive waitress. Check it out!!!
