We went here the July 4th weekend. Very bad service, waited forever for the meal, got cold, not very tastey and over priced food and rude people and a disorganized place. Would NEVER recommend this place to anyone.

That is certainly not an accurate portrayal of our restaurant, we are friendly and organized and take great pride in our menu. Can you give me details of when you were here so I may review your service and guest check?

We love to eat here because the food is always nicely prepared and of top quality. If you don't have reservations in the summer you most likely will not get a table. The hostess sometimes makes you feel like she's doing you a favor. This...More
