Excellent service and very good food. Wide selection to choose from. We have eaten here several times in the past and the food and service has consistently exceeded our expectations. Beware the portions are very large.

The food and portion size are fantastic. Sometimes the wait is long but it is well worth it. The service is great. I always have a full fresh cup of coffee.

If you like big helpings on your plate, then you will love this place. I use to come to this place often, before they moved locations. They still have great food and service. Place can get busy on the weekends.
