Ok food with some bad results in the end. Been here several times and tried different items and always end up with a bad case of the "you know what" within 15 minutes of eating.

We stopped by for a quick lunch. The place screams to be redecorated. The food was okay, but they messed up 2 of our 3 orders. By the time it got straightened out we were finished with our food. I would not eat there again.

We were invited to a surprise party at Toivo's. The service was good. A full bar is adjacent to the eating area so you could relax before or after your meal as well.
