Food was very good (not spectacular) but portions are generous. My husband ordered the half rack of ribs and could not finish them. I had a chicken pasta dish and brought enough home for 2 more meals. Highly recommend the Portuguese "house" wine - very nice. The restaurant has been renovated, especially the soup and salad bar area. The soup... More

The meal was less than extraordinary, the service was wonderful but the food not so much. I had the market price lobster tails that were quite pricey and overcooked. The salad bar was fine but the best part of the meal was the sautéed whole mushrooms. For what I paid I could have stayed home and made the same thing,... More

The home made fresh warm bread is part of the reason I love this place! Always a great trip to the salad bar with unlimited buns. Plus their steak and prime rib is the best in town. Great value for the money!
