“Bad Management”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

We visited the restaurant recently and needed a table for 6. I was told there are only two booths they "allow" 6 people to sit in which is crazy. We were given instead two booths that could easily hold 6 in each booth. When we told the manager we all wanted to sit in one booth he gave us unbelievable, crazy excuses. Everything from the food plates wouldn't fit to he didn't want to ruin our dining experiences. The booth was big enough! We wanted to sit together! The manager absolutely wouldn't let us sit together. He ruined our dining experience. We have visited the restaurant many times for many years. We won't be back!

Service was good, but we felt rushed
Food was average, Excellent corn bread from their own recipe.
You had to pay for extra,s to go with main course

“Wood fire grilled chicken and lamb.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

Wood fire grill - chicken, lamb. Delicious. Good service, deserves a solid 4 star rating. Like cornbread? Try this one, very moist with a hint of jalapeño. Perrier served with a chilled glass. No rush, great food, quiet enough for dinner and conversation.
