Beef Dip fine if somewhat small. Kids liked their meals-chicken sand. and chicken ceasar salad. My wife ordered a burger with a lettuce wrap and no thousand island dressing as she is Celiac. When her order arrived it had dressing on it. The server stated that it was gluten free because she knew it is the same dressing as Macdonalds. I should have sent it back as it was not what she ordered, but she was hungary after travelling all day. Server mishandled the situation totally. Management should speak to staff about severity of Celiac disease. Would attempt different restaurant before trying again.

My Wife, Daughter and my self visited this restaurant for a meal after we had been told this was a good place to eat.
Although we know that it is a busy place on a Friday night we took a chance, when we got there we were shown to our table and asked what we would like to drink, after deciding the drinks soon arrived, the waitress who was very good took a order and ten minutes later the starter arrived, which was very good, soon after we had finished our main meals came, although the waitress came a few times she was not a nuisance.
Overall the food was very good, the ambience of this restaurant is really nice, the staff are very good.

We ate here on a whim and was not disappointed. The menu isn't huge and there isn't a kids menu but they were more than willing to accommodate the kids. Food was delicious and service was great, will return.

This place has a little of everything. Couldn't decide between the fritz or steak and sushi went with the fritz was great cut was on the small side and served with a small salad on the plate. Service was great would return if in the area again.

Went there last week with 2 colleagues from work for lunch. 2 of ordered a salad and we had to wait quite awhile before we could flag someone down to ask for more dressing as there was almost none. Other than that food was good. When the waiter came by and asked us if we wanted any desserts and we say no, it's usually a sign that we want the bill because we're ready to leave. Probably close to 10 mins later he arrives with the bill and didn't even bother to ask if we wanted it separated. My girlfriend ended up with the whole bill and because of the lack of lunch hour we had left we just gave he some cash later on to pay for our share.

It's usually a fairly good place for food and timing for lunch but they were definitely off their game last week.
