I went there two or three times with friends, or to meet up friends, for lunch or dinner. We all agreed this place was mediocre at best. While you do have a lot of choices, they were way overpriced and not very good. The food,...More

Other reviewers have mentioned similar observations as I will repeat. Slow, iffy service, food is hardly "chef" stature- seems like prepackaged sauces, dinners are the worst, breakfasts are just ok- muffins rule.

This restaurant is midway between my home and my brother/SILs so we'd meet there often for late lunches. Noticed a change in things about a year and a half ago - used to be good food and good service but began to notice that the...More
