Food was cold, servings we're small, and overpriced. Two small salads, a small cup of soup, single serving of wings, and a half-rack of ribs... $50. Even the wings were bland.

The deplorable restroom conditions can only be a sign of the quality of food service they have at this restaurant. When I went into the restroom the toilet was over flowing with fescues and water into the floor. A waiter’s apron was on the baby...More
