Amazing food with great hamburger specials on Wednesdays and Chicken parm on Mondays. The staff is great and always there when you need them. Plenty of outdoor seating for nice days and a great upstairs for events.

We went for our son's 30th birthday party, and the buffet they set out was fantastic. The wait staff was courteous and prompt. We would like to go back again sometime to try the regular menu.
