Wanted to take my employees out for dinner and called to make reservations. The answer was "we don't take reservations over 8 people, we don't move tables, but we will try to seat you as close to each other as possible." Really???? Well, you just...More

Enjoyed a light dinner with my sister-in-law and were treated to a delicious meal as expected. But the young woman who served us was delightful. Thank you for a great experience.
