I enjoyed a preChristmas dinner with 3 longtime friends. We decided to try the Early Bird Special which is a great value. Martinis were also a great bargain. The service was top notch.

Have been here various times for brunch, dinner and dessert. Brunch is pretty good but the cake is to die for. They always have different selection of cakes. Staff is usually pretty friendly. Restaurant is not too busy so you can always get a table.

Our food was average at best. My friend's meal was very salty. My food was just OK. We were disappointed in the service. The waiter was very hyper and tried to rushes out the door. I don't think I'll be going back there.

We have eaten here a few times over the years and our most recent visit was likely our last. We arrived around 11:15 am on a Sunday, and I would say the restaurant was close to half full. After waiting at the hostess station for...More
