Staff not very friendly. Almost rude. Food was very good & good portions. Prices a little high, but would return. Batavia barbecue sauce was very good.

The food and staff were awesome. I went for my birthday dinner. I ordered the bbq brisket, grilled vegetable, and sweet potatoe fries. I am picked not wanting fries full of grease. These were absolutely impeccable if I may say. Extremely satisfied.
