Variety of food is good. Prices are very resonable. Generally is not over crowded so no long waits, however lunch is a little busy. Quality of food is good.

I attended a political fundraiser on the second floor of this location and it's a great space. I like that we could see the shops below and there was plenty of space. It's a great area for a small party!
