Went here with a friend during New Years Eve 2020. The restaurant was serving a buffet, which had plenty of food, to much to mention. Have been to this restaurant a few other times and can't complain. Service has been fast and food was good.

Food and service was really good. like the laid back atmosphere. the place has a really cool back area, with a bunch of local signage and antiques. i think this place would benefit from a larger menu. i think it is mostly a upscale bar.
