"Can you give me a minute?" was another response from a nearby table. So whoever issued the edict to push the special needs to try decaf. So, sure the... More

The food is consistent in portion size. The prices are fair and the service is good. Fun atmosphere, but very busy on the weekends!

Two nights in a row we ate there and two nights in a row they cooked my husband's steak too much. My food was all right but we usually ate separate since they had to recook his food.

The food is always consistent and good. The prices are resonable. It is always fun to walking around the attached store and look at all the candy and other products.

Very slow service, coffee after 5 minutes of being seated and meal was a half hour late. Waitress blamed the kitchen. Meanwhile people who came after use were eating within 15 minutes after arrival
