Food is okay, a little salty but portions are good and service was great. The waiter made sure we had everything we needed, filled our drinks and made sure we had extra rolls.

Nice restaurant with good food. Large menu with lots of selection. Our waitress wasn't the best but all the others seemed to be giving great service. I would go again if I was in the area.

A nice location that is close walking distance to the People's Bank ball park. The portions are generous, food is good; nothing fancy. Premises are clean. So is the restroom.

Title says it all. Healthy stick-tyo-the-ribs foods. Lots of selections. Tidy and clean, 50s-60s-70s decor--and it works Super-service--staff likes what they do and it shows in the service. No rush, no bother, eat, talk and kick back. Sort of like sitting on the dock of...More
