Ate here with my spouse who'd been here several times. If you're wanting to try this place for the first time, definitely try to go with someone who's been here before. It'll be less confusing! Definitely use more sauce than what you think you'll need....More

Very good healthy options at the grill! Line at the grill was all the way into dining area! Really nice staff repeatedly apologized for the wait. Loved the food but a bit pricey for what it is. $20.00 with tip per person.

Whay a treat to hear radio commercial. Nice selection of meats, fish, veggies and sauces/oils. Only complaint. They don't add water while cooking. The board with flavor suggestions is a nice touch. Also a treat to get salad with the meal. I will go back.
