We had lunch at this restaurant and it was very enjoyable. Lots of choices, even on a restricted diet. The waitress was very nice as well. I recommend it for sure!

The place was small. It's not like the same friendly I loved while growing up. Service was ok. Place was clean. Serving size was very small and I'm not a big eater. I wouldn't go back I wasn't happy.
