“Just ok.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Wait staff was slow, but food is ok. The place wasnt very busy, but you would think it was a madhouse with the 2 waiters bustling around. Took forever to seat us and take order. The food was good, so it made up for the wait.

“Restarant Commander”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

The lady that brough the food was the 60+ commander style person. I guess she had worked in a prison before. The food was far too expensive, fast food style at restaurant rates.
The restaurant is pretty ugly. A big hall that is decorated with white wooden bars to make it look smaller. But still you feel like sitting in a train station and waiting for your connections.

“Drive right by, do not stop here”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

I was very disappointed in this restaurant. The waitstaff seemed to be inexperienced, but they did try. The chicken sandwiches that we ordered were bland. The food costs too much here for what you get. Go somewhere else.

“Not a fan”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

Hate to write a bad review but the food was terrible. I had the sand dabs fish of the day and my wife had the hamburger both were awful. The table next to us had a similiar experience. Sorry but maybe they will improve?
