I would like to see the service happier and more responsive. However the food here is worth the visit. If you don't have lots of time don't stop in. It is great to spend time catching up with friends.

Six of us stopped in the other evening for a quick supper before a concert at a local university. We were served immediately by a very attentive server. Our food was good as were the cocktails and beers. All in all, a nice meal.

Wife got sick on the fish. I ordered ribs but I couldn't tell because they were drowned in sauce. I would not go there again. People that gave this place a high rating for food are either owners, employees or parollies.

It pretty much agrees with my rating. We will not be returning either. They either ignore you or rush you out.
