This was our first visit, we'll eat there again. The food and prices are great so there's probably always a wait, but worth it. Service was very good. If you don't like a loud cramped setting, it may not be the restaurant for you, we...More

A long wait but worth it. I ordered Lobster Benedict and it was simply delicious. A little pricy but for a one time thing go for it.

We ordered take out. Very expensive,no forks or ketup. French fries were very cold, should have not been due to only 2 mins away. Food was ready when we got there. Would not recommend if your on a budget.

I don't think that they use boxed eggs. I think that many restaurants cannot make good scrambled eggs, because they make them on the grill and scrambled eggs need to be made in a frying pan to turn out right.
