My sisters recommended coming here for lunch, I enjoyed the food, had the pasta great Alfredo sauce, the cheesecake was delish. Service was fair. The atmosphere could use a lil updating.

We stopped just to get a quick bite to eat before we went to our event. Most of the appetizers are 1/2 price and special prices on drinks from 3-6pm. Good and service were great!

I entered a little before 5pm to beat the crowd and get back to the hotel for more work on the computer.... At first, the service was great, my first glass of wine was a little off - I think the bottle was open too...More

Always good service. Love the hot beef sandwich. Have never had a bad meal. Easy access. Can easily get in and out within the one hour lunch time frame.
