....and I’m anxious. Let’s see where this goes from here. After all, it has four stars, right? Seated promptly, although it’s 3:15pm. Our server is definitely from here and has probably worked here most of her years. Paper napkins, butter and rolls served in paper...More

Treated friends to what I thought would be a great restaraunt. I would never go back. The service was awful, their food was mediocre. Go across the street to the Maine Diner instead. Don't waste your time or money!More

We seat our customers based off of which waiters are working that night and who is available to take on more. Sometimes we have days with shorter staff so it simply takes a little longer, but we appreciate your patience. Looks like your meal was...More

Maybe it depends on what you order or whether you’re a local. I am not sure. I’d say from the owners responses on previous views that I’ve read on here is that he tries to keep his restaurant on the up and up. However, we...More
