Pleasantly surprised by the food selection and food taste. I was impressed. We were seated outside, it was very pleasant except for when an ambulance went by. The chicken dish was very good, service was excellent and seating was prompt. Recommend this establishment.

Service 5 stars. Great menu choices. Generous helpings. Steak was a tad undercooked but was remedied in a timely fashion. Didn’t try dessert but the choices looked sumptuous. Highly recommend!
