We went to celebrate our anniversary and my husband's birthday. The food was above average, but not outstanding. The service was very disappointing. For the money, I would travel to Tampa before I would go back

The $35.00 special for Lakeland restaurant week is some kind of joke for the price for one person. If it was for two people it would still be to expensive. All menu prices are just to expensive. Not for family.
