Had trouble deciding whether to give this restaurant three or four circles, or whatever they are. Your satisfaction will depend a lot on what you order, and how much you enjoy using new technology. My wife and I had dinner here with another couple on a busy Wednesday night. My wife ordered the tomato bisque soup, which she permitted me to taste. Both of us agreed that it was by far the best we had ever eaten. On the other hand, my hamburger was average at best. Fries were very good, but very, very salty. Wine selection is very nice.
The new technology, ordering from an iPad, is a mixed blessing. We placed our order relatively quickly, but the couple we were with took longer to decide what they wanted. As an unanticipated result, their food arrived 20 minutes after ours. A word to the wise - if you have multiple parties ordering, try to have them do it simultaneously. Other than that anomaly, the technology worked beautifully, and when the checks arrived they were perfectly accurate. It also helped that we had an excellent waitress, who guided us patiently through the ordering process.
Prices are reasonable.
