Got seated fast and did not care for the atmosphere too much. Food came in a timely manner. The food was ok not the best but service was ok also.

Doesn't look like much from the outside, but it is a good place to come and have a nice lunch. They have a salad bar, that is not really extensive, but OK for most folks. We had good service, and the owner stopped by our...More
