Food was ok. Place looks dirty. Bathrooms are outside the bulding but they charge as it was a nice restaurant.

Note the title of my review... I was not looking for a fancy dinner. The walk-up and order system in this restaurant also suggests that it is not fine dining. Most of the items leaving the kitchen looked great, but I was told that it...More
