Don't get Mac-n-Cheese on pasta night, it's not the same. Must of had a recent management change as we've eaten here many times and have never had such poor service and bad food. Removing Garrett's from the list.

We ended up at this place because every place else had a 30-60 min wait. This place has a nice atmosphere with a friendly and great staff. The food was just average. Not bad but nothing great. For what they charge I was expecting more.
