We always enjoy our dinners here except it is often very loud and the chairs make a great deal of noise when moved. The food is very good and the service is quick.

They don't have any private rooms, but may be able to accommodate you. I have seen large groups/families. I suggest you call and tell them what it is for and how many people. They are very friendly and helpful.
