First time here. Was there for lunch and was impressed with the staff. We were seated immediately and the server on the ball. He had many tables and never stopped giving great service to all of us. Food was very tasty and desert was delicious.

The available brews were a great addition but my compliments end there. After a long day of driving we knew that we'd only catch the 4th Quarter of the NBA finals. We immediately sat and ordered both food and drinks. We rec'd our food and...More
