Very pleased with the fare and would definitely come back, Didn't catch the young blond waitress' name, but she went above... More

Sustanance only. Was told by a local they had good fried chicken which interested my wife. It was not good. I had tough lamb chops, which were hard to cut. Try someplace else rather than eating here
