“Good food, good fun restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012

This restaurant is a gem. I always go here with friends and my kids. The service is welcoming, atmosphere is fun and theres even a karaoke room! Theres lots of delicious dishes to choose from the menu and you get a lot of food for your $$. Great value.
