“Gross and over priced”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

Paid $30 for dried out meat and not even what I had ordered. The driver was given terrible information so the poor guy got lost. He was the best part of the whole ordeal. The food was a waste, not even edible. Pretty sure the fried shrimp was actually past due.

“Very good steaks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I went to the steakhouse side. Wife's ribeye was perfectly cooked, as was my filet. Teriyaki sauce on my chicken was also excellent (I had the combo). Creme brûlée was average--be warned, the rim of the ramekin is very hot.

“China Palace”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Excellent Food American and Chinese. Owner and wait staff are friendly. Usually visited daily by local Professionals. Judges, Dr's Attorneys, Law Enforcement, and Farmers. Looks a little older but very clean and well maintained. The Tri-Tip Sandwich is a lunch special and is excellent. The Bar is always open :)
