I enjoyed the history of the building and restaurant, but that was about it. Found it to be over priced for ok food and average size portions. Went to McDonald's to fill up after dinner. I like spicy food, but found an underlying lack of flavor Beneath the spice. Service was efficient but impersonal.
Went to a small place in a strip mall down the main hwy about a mile the next day and it was much better in flavor and price. Can't remember the name, but it was in a small strip shopping center on the right as you head toward the casinos and up the current of the river. It was know for its Tortugas and we found it on yelp. A real local place. Had paradise or Rainbow in the name maybe.
