Unfortunately, today we witnessed the ultimate unsanitary practice that I've ever seen at a restaurant. A gentleman who works the floor and... More

Time went on and we didn't dine here for many years, until this January. I had become vegan since then and... More

I thought the food good was for a buffet. Very typical buffet food, nothing fancy, just home cooking. Tried their special meatloaf & it was good.
