Not a big fan of the menu, mostly fried food. However, the sides are very good and the bread is the best. Kids love having bread thrown at them.

They never have a “birthday deal”. But, they defiantly make it a big deal. They’ll announce the birthday and tell everyone what room their in and point them out. It’s a lot of fun.
