I went with a group yesterday, we all enjoyed our food. The portions were yummy and great at their prices and I enjoyed my adult beverages. The hostess was sweet when we walked in, which is inviting. I already told my friends we're going back...More

I have eaten here several times and the food is really good. We came for dinner after 830pm and they had a live band playing which made our dinner more pleasurable. Parking is alittle tight but they have valet parking if you need it. Try...More

I went to this place many years ago, even liked it so much that we had a 50th anniversary celebration there. A lot has since changed...We went last night for a romantic sunset dinner, even overlooking the trashy neighborhood rife with junkyards and shipyards and...More
