The food was great! Even my kids that don't usually eat much devour it! However the portions were super small and I still left hungry. Not to mention it took 30 minutes to even order because the waiter's iPad didn't work. Not impressed.

A little dark inside, but great food and staff. We went there last year twice and enjoyed our food and beverage. They had a great seafood buffet too!

No matter which way to go, the food is good, the music fantastic! The only reason I lost one circle is I prefer outdoor seating and this is an indoor place. But the food is worth the trip and be prepared for a large serving!

The waitress announced that Thursday was liver and onions day and a number of folks cheered. Not my thing, but I'm mentioning it to be fair.... More
