Clean restaurant with good food. Servings are very generous. Waitstaff was attentive. They did not object to separate bills which is greatly appreciated when we're on club outings.

This place is hard to get in to, and for good reason! They serve typical diner food, but the taste is amazing. Our waitress was friendly and we received our food very fast for how busy it was. There was not an empty seat in...More
