The service was absolutely horrible! Food was so so. This place needs a skilled manager committed to customer service and efficiency.

Chose this place for lunch and we weren't disappointed. An authentic vintage setting: large island counter top service with open kitchen and other service requirements in the middle. I had the daily special, philly cheesesteak sandwich which came with a bag of chips. The wife...More
