The place was packed which is always a good sign if the restaurant is any good. You can tell the manager really helps his staff to make the place work. Service was excellent and really friendly and food was great. Will be coming back!!

A disappointing breakfast visit. For starters the breakfast bar was almost none existent and cramped in to a ridiculously small space. Certainly not the deck of unlimited continental breakfast delight advertised on their website. If someone is using the toaster then you’re queuing for coffee....More
