The food was quickly served, fresh and delicious! We had spinach dip (yum), veggie burger, fish burgers and beet/goat cheese salad. All were very good with good sized portions. Service was excellent; waiter was very attentive and friendly, recommending drinks and giving advice on the...More

It’s been at least a couple of years since we were last here, and nothing has changed décor-wise… still the same dark wood paneling and dreary interior that could use a refreshing upgrade, or at the very least a good scrub down. We think there...More

Very noisy, mostly from bar area, occasional loud music. Steak was tough even though just medium somewhat rare. Pasta with chicken was OK. Pleasant waitress.

My husband and I went for dinner on a Friday evening and sat out on the patio. Sadly, It was the best part of the whole experience. The tables were far apart that they felt secluded, and you were not overhearing conversations around you. The...More
