No real atmosphere inside, Feels more like a cafeteria than a restaurant. You can't eat atmosphere but if you are looking for an evening out for dinner there are nicer places. The food is good most of the time, the service is average.

We stopped there last Friday to try the perch. It was very good. We said next time we need to try the pizza. Well the next time was Sunday on the way home and it was very good. Nice local family restaurant.
