The place was dirty, sticky tables, slow service and the ice cream portions were small, although you'd think you'd get double that for the price. It was a one and done for us.

Great parking at this family restaurant. We got seated right away during the busier dinner hour. Seemed understaffed as we did not get offered water refills. There was an empty water pitcher that sat nearby. The food was quickly served and was hot and tasted...More
