Great service by Jayni. Little ones had Mac and Cheese. I tasted it and it is really good. The fried chicken is not exactly what I expected. It is fried, but has a sauce. It was good but different. The haddock was outstanding. Large portion....More

Dishes here are better than the pizza. As far as marinara goes, it is more sweet than spicy. So a parmigiana dish is not really overpowered by the sauce. Pizza is good. Burgers are excellent. My parents love their taco salad of all things !

The place is pleasant enough, and the people are too. But sorry, that just doesn't get it done when the service is extraordinarily slow and the food is just not very good.
