Loud, crowded, but very good food. Easy menu for novices, lots of photos, sophisticated menu for those in the know. Next day leftovers, better than ever!

We have been going to this restaurant for 10+ years! Food and service are amazing, and desert you must have after your meal. Family owned, friendly people! Go early, very busy at dinner time.
