OK, we read all the reviews and we're hoping this place was going to be a diamond in the rough. All the reviews raved about how great the food was. To be honest, it was fairly average. A good meal but nothing spectacular.

Good food at a reasonable price with a full bar. It can be busy because most patrons are locals, so plan on arriving early if possible.
