First time ever and I have to say I was impressed. My waitress recommended great items based on my questions. Reasonably priced, fresh selections, great portion sizing.

After a lengthy wait, the food was fantastic, the salad was a meal in its self. I recommend any sandwich meal for lunch. The dinner entrees are not high dining, but realistic product for the price. I enjoyed the dining experience.

I ordered marinated steak - dry, tough and overcooked. I asked for replacement - also overlooked and odd seasoning. Second steak delivered by manager with big attitude rather than apologizing. This restaurant was great last year. I will not go again.
