We were excited to visit Garlic Lover's Corner for dinner after receiving a gift certificate from a friend who really enjoys dining here. We left slightly disappointed. The service was less than average as we waited at our table for over 10 minutes before even...More

This is a favorite of ours, love the cuisine and it is truly family owned (the family owners are highly available and warm, kind people). NOT open on Sundays as an FYI.
