“Good food, relaxed atmosphere”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

I knew nothing about the place, but we were running late and many other restaurants were closed. Looked OK from the outside so we decided to give it a try. We had good food, large portions, reasonably priced, and we got two free cookies per person at the end. What else could we ask for? Not "gourmet" food, but it was not intended to be. Nice hearty meal and I did not mind that my shirt shared some of my food, it did not look like the place that my slopiness would cause eyebrows to be lifted.

“subpar sandwich joint”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

If you just want a sandwich or an appetizer you can eat here. Service is slow and the kitchen can't prepare the dinner entrees without overcooking or even burning them. Some members of our party had turkey burgers that were just okay. Those of us who had the shrimp pasta, the ribs, and the Tuscan chicken had meals that were subpar to say the least. They were dry and tasteless. The manager was of no help. he only apologized and kept moving.
