the food is okay, the service slow, the atmosphere reminds me of a truck stop, nobody knows each other, the friendly banter between customers and staff is gone. not cheerful at all. way over priced. never again.

3 servers were milling about 8 ft from me and no one said hello or took an order for 10 minutes. Had to repeat order, ask for coffee and again for refill, and no one cared to ask how I enjoyed the meal. Food's okay. Service is lousy!!!
