My wife made reservations for our anniversary dinner on a Saturday night. We had not been here for a couple of years and keep telling ourselves that we had to come back as we had a great experience the first time. We were not disappointed....More

If you want a mediocre meal, poor service and a grumpy host come here. We had all of the above on our last visit and it will be our last visit! You will get a better meal at McDonalds. Avoid this restaurant at all times!!
