They just started to open during the week so it wasn't real busy. Great atmosphere. Had a group singing, love this place. Food was great. Would highly recommend. The manager was great.

i find this restaurant to be very pricey for average food. we had a large group and half didn't even order an entree and the bill was outrageous. service was just fair and it was not a very busy evening. i think we will chose an alternate option next time visiting

Amazing food. I ordered the ribs, and the meat came off the bones. didn't need a knife. Everything was delicious. My daughter order the sushi and it was delicious. The service was great too. Our weiter was very attentive. Would recomend ths place to everyone that is looking for a reasonable place to eat.

Excellent assortment of food, easy access off season, plenty of room and time to talk. No one rushed us out. Great time.
