We went for a date night and had a great time. Our server was very attentive and the food was delicious. The chocolate cake was out of this world and I was very pleased with the price. I will be back.

Yes they are. They even give them a bowl of water. Restaurant suggested making a reservation to guarantee a table so you don't have to wait too long. Enjoy your visit and take a picture for Trip Advisor. Sue S.
