Great service but food and drink were typical of chain industry restaurants. Service was very accommodating to our large group.

We are an eclectic group due to my gluten free needs. The four of us ate a wide variety of dinners that were all good. This from people who had just finished a food-rich, 15-day cruise. High praise.
