Service was excellent, food was fast and very good. There were 4 of us and the sirloin steak, filet mignon and hamburger steak were excellent as was the soup and salads.

You need to try the Happy-tizers! The Bloody Mary Shrimp and Flat Bread Pizza are great. Just seeing these will make you want to try these. Great flavor!
