Service was great. Food was okay. My son had fries and they tasted horrible, like reused oil x100. It didn't ruin the expierence or anything just making note. Very nice server.

First time there. Enjoyed the food. Clean restaurant but the service was lacking. Food was delivered quickly but after that we did not see our waiter. Was hard to get refills for our drinks. Would go back but would probably request a different server.

We drove through and brought home greens and chicke. As good as your grandma's cooking. It is a little crowded for lunch so come early.
