Not one item was better then just ok. If you want a lot of food ok but if you want good food it won't happen here.

There were a few items that were overcooked, a few that could have been removed sooner, but the food was pretty decent. They didn't have a chocolate fountain either, which was odd. I was put...

Can't go wrong with stopping here! Great selection of food. All very good. Their steak was very good n tender. The restaurant was clean too n very busy. We were on a bus n they gave us a separate room n waiter. The one in our home town closed years ago. Don't know why because there were always people there.
