The service is quick, the servers are all friendly, an enjoyable place to have a meal. Although everything that I've ordered has been good, I especially liked their St. Patricks Day meal, corned beef/cabbage. So glad that we have a place that cooks home-cooked meals.

Staff are animated and fun to interact with. Long term staff members relate to regular customers well and seem to help set a fun and inviting atmosphere whenever anyone walks thru the door. Lively banter and thoughtful conversation are appreciated.
