Waiter was great.Food was good. When entering business to get table, host and hostess was speaking in a foreign language about a table or us. This made us feel uncomfortable. We speak English here.

This year we enjoyed a wonderful dinner and also took my Aunt and Uncle to lunch before we headed back to Iowa. Never disappointed and I hope my Aunt and Uncle will begin dining there. We always eat outside.
