We were here for a rehearsal dinner and after party. We came back the next morning for breakfast. Nice atmosphere, good service, good food and large selection. Prices were really good as well.

Several family members myself included breakfast, lunched and had dinner at the restaurant. The menu was extensive and the waitstaff helpful and courteous even when we asked for separate checks in small groupings.

Nice summer evening- everyone is packed onto the outside patio- very crowded! Food is tasty as usual- service is somewhat slow.

Great place with fabulous food. You will enjoy the patio which is very comfy. The food was excellent and service even better. Portions are large and value is there in both food and drink. Go, it is a safe bet!
