I have been here a few times, the atmosphere is great everyone is extremely pleasant! The food prices are not too expensive, no one has ever gotten sick however the service is a bit slow! (I think because of limited staff and lots of customers)

Good comfort food. Service a bit slow with only one server. Basic decor that is appropriate for the venue.
