“Talks To Much”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

My wife and I stopped here for lunch. This was our first visit here. We had to wait to be seated. Restaurant was not full. the hostess had to clean our table. After being seated our waitress took our order. She complained about the fact that they only had two servers for lunch. Someone apparently called out. I guess that management just takes that in stride, without thinking about the customer. After our order, we waited for our lunch, for what seemed to be a long time, apparently the cook staff was short staffed as well. Our waitress was at an adjacent table talking "shop", with another customer. She said that she needed to check on our order. My wife and I looked at each other and said thank you. Our food was warm, but not hot. Service was not the greatest. Even the bill was not accurate at first.

“Poor service and management”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

Very busy! Staff is not very courteous. I asked be seated at a table and the waitress told me it was reserved. I sat at the bar, ate my meal, had a beer - and table went empty. Spoke with management and apology was not very sincere. Gave the benefit of the doubt and went back. Same! Hope you all have better experience.

“Sick”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

I ordered a salad for lunch today and took it with me so I could go back to work. After only 10 minutes I was so sick I couldn't stay out of the bathroom for more than a few minutes.
I have never had a reaction like this before. It was a salad that's all..
I do know I won't ever order from there again. It has been 4 hours since I ate and I'm still feeling ill.
