Had a great birthday dinner for my wife there last night! I tried the seafood piccata, which was awesome, and she had the carbonara, that was also very good! Friendly service from the moment we walked in, til we left. We will be back!

An inviting restaurant, with many options. If you are there for lunch you can either order off the menu or you can have their lunch buffet. The buffet offers many choices, including the salad bar.
