Food was very ordinary but quite expensive. Only 15 people there on a Saturday night, including bar patrons. Service was very good, but then again, no one in the restaurant.

I've tried this restaurant on several occasions as I work nearby. I've not yet had a meal that was worth the cost. A turkey wrap will run $14 and a draft beer is $7. All of the items on the menu, with the possible exception...More

Went to lunch here today, worst $16 hamburger ever. Bun was dry and over toasted, the burger was overcooked , dry and flavorless. Save $13 and go to Burger King and have a better meal.More
