My spouse is working here at the local gas plant on long shifts, so when the waitress seats people standing behind him I think wth! That was rude and cruel.

Just ate dinner here and had the chef nightly special. The flavour was very good and the presentation was excellent. I sat at the bar and the service was good. The bartender was busy but i was not in a hurry. Overall a good experience.
