I dine at this locale regularly with my friend's family, several of whom have dietary concerns; the menu fully supports the associated limitations and attention to required food preparation. Plus the food is always very good, and the service is awesome!

I wouldn't consider this a "healthy" Restaurant but more like comfort food. Google and check out the Menu online to get an idea. There's quite a variety of food. Salads are great too. Enjoy!
