We came on a Saturday night. Service was a little slow considering we were one of maybe 6 tables in the entire place. Food was decent. The location was convenient given we were staying at the Sheraton which was a short walk away.

Visited for a light lunch on a Friday. My wife and I both had the calamari starter with garlic and salsa dips plus coleslaw. The portions meant we did not have an entrée but plumped for the "Apple Betty" dessert. Both courses were beautiful.
