We went as a large group (13). I was the only one who had been before and it had been 20 years since that occurred. The food was great. The service was adequate. The portions were large. My only complaint was, I remember the waiters...More

We decided to take my daughter and grandkids for her birthday celebration. The restaurant hasn't changed since it's opening in 1979. It could use some updates. Service was great. The food was good but not great. My grandkids loved it running around getting all the...More

Our party of 11 visited 7/29 between 1-3. Had to wait an hour for a table, which was fine. Our waitress "Cinderella" was nothing more than a young lady in a blue dress who was there to waitress, not entertain. The wait to get drinks,...More
