We always make a trip here for dinner for the past 20 plus years. We went last night service was fair, the food was the biggest disappointment ever. We will not be going back.

Good food, good service, nice place. Went here twice for dinner. Reasonably priced as well. Didn't realize this was part of a chain- apparently the first one. Would definitely go here again.
