We popped in here late in the evening could not find many restaurants open. The wait staff was nice the food came quick. It was nothing to write home about but sure glad they were open late and certainly did hit the spot.

Nothing fancy but the food was pretty tasty. Just wished that they had an up to date menu. Two things I chose were no longer offered.

This was almost the only place open on Nee Years, but it was decent...would probably go somewhere else first if we had options. Service was excellent.
