Food was decent. Nothing special. Wasn't crowded for a late lunch but my husband had to go to the bar to ask for drink refills.

Our family of 15 visited last week. The food seemed OK...but the service was terrible. It took a very long time to get our meals and drinks. Waitress must not care for large groups. Other groups seemed to be having a good time...we couldn't wait...More
