We went for Sunday Brunch. The initial wait was about half an hour. There was a wait at the table after that. The server was not only attentive and fast, she was also very knowledgeable. I ordered the chicken and biscuits. She warned me about it having onions, even though it was not described that way in the menu. The... More

Not a great experience. I stopped in for lunch and as I was alone I sat at the bar, which is the main reason that I didn't have a great experience. I haven't eaten here with a group at a table. The bar its self is a bit narrow and seemed cluttered with light fixtures and place settings already set.... More

We went on Saturday, 3 days before the Valentine's Day and the place place is full with more waiting guests. Well the wait time take us 20 minutes but worth it. The hostess and the server are friendly and attentive. The Garlic noodle with chicken is the family's favorite and also their burgers are superb. Ensure you leave a space... More

We tried to make reservations for a Saturday but were unable. We arrived and were told that a party of 8 would take up to 2 hours to be seated. We ended up leaving and patronizing another establishment around the corner. We ended up coming back and got some cheesecake to go. This was only a 20 min endeavor and... More

Haven't been here in years and won't come back for years more. Nice decor and servers are friendly and informative. But the food was TERRIBLE! My wife had a chicken Caesar salad ( no Parm cheese) and that is what she got. A big pile of lettuce about 6 inches high and a few pieces of chicken. Not anything else.... More
