Our pizza was good.....fish sandwich good. Place is very noisy. Service was average......left empty glasses & plates on table for an extended time. Probably would return, but is is no better than similar types of restaurants.

This is added to our usual go to spots to eat now! It has a huge beer menu, and unique/delicious boneless wings. Hermanaki boneless is the way to go with ranch that is out of this world good. It is a seasoning of teriyaki and...More
