My daughter and I really enjoyed our lunch on Friday. The turkey club was very good and the chicken in a spinach wrap was also very tasty! Our server was very friendly and attentive. Will definitely visit again!

Have been here quite a number of times. The food is hit and miss- many dishes are not good, then I'll get one that is tasty. The convenient location brings in the traffic, but the service is always sub-standard. Might recommend a late dessert and...More
