I eat here a couple times a month, it's consistently decent. The place is relatively clean and the dishes are good. They do change it up every once in a while with something different.

I really like eating here, my food is always hot and they make anything for you they don't already have on the bar. The only negative is we have been a few times when the waitresses get our drinks mixed up with another tables ... Gross...
