“Some good food-but odd service”

I have visited Song's about 10 times. Because they do feature higher end Asian food than Hunan's or Yu Garden, I would like be more enthusiastic. The prices are right and they do try.
But they just HAVE to work on better service and consistency if they want to be the important 'Better Asian Food' Choice in Town.

The service is just odd. They try too hard but have no sense of timing. This would be trivial at a dive, but this is a borderline white table cloth experience and they just don't have any 'rhythm'.

The food is sometimes very good. But then I'd say it falls short about a third of the time. Still, if you order 5 things with a group, probably 3 or 4 will be better than other places can even try to do. That is worth something in a small town.

Tired of Mexican fare? This place looks like a typical Chinese place you'd pass in any small town USA but someone told us not to misjusdge this place. If you want good food without MSG and vegetarian choices come here. The interior is not much to write home about but the food was great. The meals begin with the type of fresh green salad that you might pay the whole price for but it's just the starter. Fresh and surprisingly good.

Didn't try the Japanese choices just the Chinese.

Lunch is a particularly good deal and the service was kind and friendly.

We were so tired and hungry after all day skiing and found this restaurant. The food was very delicious and the service was very fast. Though its a very old building and needs a lot of renovation, but if we think about the food it was too good and decently priced. They also have a Sushi bar, though I didn't try that. Please note , the Chinese guy who serves most of the people there is weak in English and seems like he is rude, but he's not. I would recommend this to any one who likes Chinese food.

We (3 families with 6 adults and 5 kids) had a great time. I was really surprised we could find such authentic Chinese food (for example, Shui Zhu Niu Rou, Suan Cai Yu) in such a small town. The food was hot and tasted really good. The owner and staff were quite friendly. We also tried some other chinese restaurant in town and that one serves typical american-chinese food such as sweet and sour chicken.

I think the grandfather waiter is losing patience with customers that don't understand his accent. They also seem unable to cope with more than a couple of tables at a time. Flavor of the dishes is good.
