Was pleasantly surprised. Haven't been there in a number of years. Staff was very pleasant and knowledgeable of menu. Did not rush you to order. Quick service in a reasonable amount of time considering the amount of business at the time.

We had to wait a bit long for out food to come out. When taking the order the waitress did not ask how we wanted our stakes cooked. For some reason the waitress addressed me and not my boyfriend with any questions about our dinner...More
