The food was good and generous food portions were served. We were there later in the evening and not many people were in the restaurant, but everything was nice and we were well taken care of.

We went there on previous trips to New Jersey and have enjoyed the food. The service is slow. Our waiter John could have checked on us more as the restaurant wasn't crowded but we enjoyed it.
