The food quality is always consistent. My sister & eat there regularly & I always bring out of town guests there too. Whether you have a large appetite or looking for something light to eat, you'll find something on the menu to satisfy you.

All of their salads are great. The rest of dishes are nice. Their service particularly front door host could be more friendly.

This is my first review ever but I was so discussed by the food and disappointed by the service that I felt convicted to say something. My husband and I were very excited to try this restaurant as two friends recommended it as very good!...More
