We have been here twice. The food is very good but a little expensive. I do like the salad bar with soup. The decor is a little outdated and dimly lit. The waitstaff are very efficient. One complaint I had: the last time here on a 90 degree summer day, (a Thursday), I may have been dressed too casual because... More

The service was great, the food was excellent. I had the Saturday special-BBQ ribs and they were absolutely delicious. My husband had the prime rib and it was equally wonderful. The traditional salad bar was wonderful, many choices and everything was fresh. The only problem was that we were almost full after eating our salads and soup, so got to-go... More
