My waitress was very friendly. Establishment was very busy, reasonably clean. Food was quite good. Salad was extremely bland. Found it to be a bit pricey overall.

WE had lunch here a few days back. I had the Buffalo Chicken salad. It was huge with a nice amount of chicken on it. All very tasty and fresh. My friend had a Reuben and she said it was good.

Average food. Somewhat bland and unexiting. Service was slow and lacking in hospitality. I have given this restaurant a couple of visits and I fail to see how it gets high ratings.
