My husband was excited to have pork ribs for dinner so we picked this restaurant. He was served the ribs and he said they were the worst ribs he ever had. Nothing but fat. I had the bacon wrapped shrimp and it was very good.

3 locals told us not to miss the Tuesday buffet and musical duo. The duo was great, the buffet horrible. When a highlight is steamed broccoli and cauliflower, you know something is wrong. Gummy mashed potatoes, Guam but no chips, and terrible grilled meats. Then,...More
