Begin with the service or lack of anything like service. We had to ask/tell the resentful waitress what to do, when to do it and move plates ourselves.

The restaurant was great overall. Very good food. Great portion sizes. All you can eat salad. Really good. I hope we got the waiter on his bad day, as service was slow and not too friendly.

The food was good. I'd rather stay at the bar they were very friendly and entertaining. The crab with shrimp is also good.
