A small hole in the wall. Not so nice from the outside but very, very nice on the inside. The food is wonderful. Prices are a bit high. It is also very cramped.

Nice and friendly people. Tasty and well served dishes. Nicely decorated, clean and fast service. I must have eaten there 4 or 5 times within the week I stayed at the Wild Palms.

The selections are always tasty. The service was okay, we had to ask a second time for a couple things. The Chicken, Veggie and Steak Filet Kabob were all tasty. We enjoy the atmosphere.
