Seven of us were seated and served quickly. The food was great and they have a much larger selection than I was expecting. It was a bit dirty but other than that I have no complaints.

Had a relaxing meal with steak and beer. The steak was cooked just the way I like it and the beer was cold. Good atmosphere and wait staff. I don't know if they do desert as we weren't offered, but the meal was plenty. Will...More

Just ok. Ordered a large chicken salad and it was all just iceberg lettuce( would have preferred a greener lettuce mix) with only 2 slices of onion and tomato. Did have a good quality of chicken and service was good though.
