The waitress was very friendly. The food came out quick and hot. We both had open face roast beef with real mashed potatoes. Very good comfort food. Also, had chocolate pie. It was incredible.

The food was fine, but nothing notable - very basic. Salad bar was terrible. No drink options. For the price, you can do better elsewhere.
