Handled my bus group of -42- very well. Menu was varied, portions ample and tasty, and service very good. Could not have asked for a better group dining experience.

Food is okay, a little salty but portions are good and service was great. The waiter made sure we had everything we needed, filled our drinks and made sure we had extra rolls.

Nice restaurant with good food. Large menu with lots of selection. Our waitress wasn't the best but all the others seemed to be giving great service. I would go again if I was in the area.

A nice location that is close walking distance to the People's Bank ball park. The portions are generous, food is good; nothing fancy. Premises are clean. So is the restroom.
