Izabel was an excellent server. The food was great. We really liked the coconut shrimp! The baby red mashed potatoes were delicious too.

Today I went to Backwoods with my family and we had a wonderful experience. Sometimes my family gets a little loud,but Isabel was very patient and polite to us. She also was very understanding in my needs of being vegan and doing some substitutes in my salad. Great food,great experience.
