We have been going to this location for years. This year we took advantage of their restaurant week special. The service was below average, the food only average and the noise level is loud. It was a good value for the food, but a disappointment.

They list discounted prices on the menu if you order before 7:00 p.m. It's a nice promotional device to fill tables early. Our party of three arrived around 6:50 p.m. and was seated and given menus immediately. We decided on our orders quickly, then looked...More
