I found the food to just be mediocre. The Salad I ordered was very bland and was not representative of what the menu said. I am not someone to complain, so I just ate it and smiled.

Used to be one could get a "good drink" for the right price but at least here, that's changed! Seems portions have become dramatically controlled! If you are accustomed to 2oz of booze to a 12-16 oz drink, don't come here! Seems management wants to...More
