Our server was delightful. Lasagna was good. Ambiance is family friendly. The key lime pie was incredible. Great meal for my birthday dinner.

I chose this place based on great tripadvisor reviews. Our party had very mixed reviews. The ribeye was extremely fatty. We asked the waitress about it before ordering and went ahead and ordered based on her recommendation. The chicken piccata was good and very flavorful....More

Pleasant surprise. Great food, warm atmosphere. I ordered the prime rib and it was done to perfection. My husband had the ahi tuna, and the portion was larger than we expected. Everything was excellent. And great service.
