The food was quite tasty, but the service was slow. The atmosphere and decor was bright and interesting. My son thought the buffalo mac and cheese was the best he had ever eaten.More

The burger took 30 mins to show up. By the time it showed up, the bread is all soggy. The staff distrusts guests. Everyone need to get staff permission before leaving.
