The tables were very close and the woman at the next table was oobnoxious. If we could have moved, we might could have had some conversation at our table too🤨. Food and service were ok but not impressive.

Not sure what “toodwhore” was expecting. This is decent, small-town, family-style fare. While it’s not Wolfgang Puck, it’s also not White Castle.
