We did a lot of research and asked locals, so went here despite the low google rating. Food was average at best, and the atmosphere is horrible. Food was lacking listed ingredients and flavor. Music was three songs, one of which was YMCA.

Offhand service from the waitress but the waiters were fine. Food was awful. My pork was burnt and smothered in poor tasting sauce. My wife's salmon was just as bad. Never again. Drinks were fine.
