Very nice restaurant. Service was very good and the food was also very good. The restaurant was very clean. The prices were on the high side for the type of food. Hamburger from $12 up.

Nachos were lacking, in that there were none...it appeared to be thinly sliced potatoes, the meager toppings were tasteless and the cheese was hard to find. The Brushetta was also tasteless and had no Balsmic to give it some flavour....maybe we hit there on a bad day, because were... More

It was one of those d fashioned diners that needed an extreme makeover. The only reason that I stayed was that it was at least clean. Typical menu... More
