Sat down for a mid morning coffee (nobody else in the restaurant ) and I waited 20 minutes before anyone even acknowledged I was there. Coffee was good, but service deplorable.

We lucked out with great live entertainment. Food was okay but awesome carrot cake and coffee. Loud bar area in middle of eating area. Great atmosphere but unsure of menu
