Very disappointed in the quality of the entire meal. The salad is now served in a large bowl and is not anywhere as good as before. Salad Dressing is so so. Appetizers are not freshly made. Bread is bland. The entrees are not the same...More

We have eaten here for years...food is always tasty...large portions...and served by knowlegable wait staff. The only negative is try not to be seated on the west wall....the tables are too close and seating is tight. Surprise...breakfasts here are spot on!!!!
