Great

Good prices for the amount of food you get. My husband and me order a red wine glass each one and they were not cheap, we got a lot...in general you can eat for 13 usd per person and plenty of food.

We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary by ourselves during lunch. The waitress provides extremely professional service. She even gave us a small congratulatory note with our tab. Food was great and the environment was perfect for celebration!!!

Came here for a business meal. Service was great. We ordered two glasses of wine, the waiter suggested a bottle, which was at 1/2 price- good choice for three people. I ordered the sea bass. This is not the normal sea bass, thick and smooth. I would not suggest it to anyone for $20. My friends ordered chicken and salmon.... More

Dinner was great! Chose to eat at the bar with the family since there was a 30 minute wait time for dining tables. Was able to carry a conversation with some friends we ran into at the bar. Football game was on the tv, but it wasn't loud.

Do not expect any special treatment as no tomato in the pasta or whatever special requirement you need, they are to busy. But if you are willing to... More

for the most part was great - we had one really bad nite though, with a waiter who seemed very put out to be dealing with a group of 10 business people who needed separate checks. the management definitely made up for that though!

Never disappoints. Great food and atmosphere. Wait staff is great. They have torn down the hotel next door so parking was a nightmare.
