Stopped by for lunch and had the ribs. Food was awesome and the service was great. Great place to get away on a lunch break. Highly recommend.

It was OK... waited awhile for our main entre....the wait time was pretty long for it not to be very busy.

Fortunately our group was not in a hurry, as the food took so long to arrive. The appetizers were served pretty much cold. The all you can eat appetizers for $10 sounds like a good deal, but the food is low quality.

I don't understand why this restaurant is popular. The service is painfully slow and the food is mediocre at best. The meals were either overcooked or served lukewarm.

Poor girl screwed herself out of a good tip! I love the server life so I know how it goes. Walk in & the hostess automatically recognized my friend. We waited a few minutes for a table. Not long at all! Our server came to the table quickly, did the speak loud enough.... she did ask for drinks and appetizers... More

Stopped in for dinner and caught the PATRIOTS game. The food was very good along with the service. Fun times with everyone supporting their teams!

Our server was great! She was good with our kids. Food was ok, nothing bad just nothing special and drinks were expensive.

Every time I come here, someone gets the pot stickers, and they are ALWAYS, 100% of the time without fail, freezer burned. This is just ridiculous! Store them correctly already, I can't be the ONLY ONE who ever noticed this. The new-ish deep fried style of potato skins are awful, and may be considered a heart attack on a plate.... More

I given this place multiple chances and every time I go the service is horrible. The food is good but it takes a ridiculous amount of time get it same with bar drinks or even soft drinks for that matter.

Took the family there and service was mediocre at best. Food was slow, kids chicken tenders were room temp and our server had half of the restaurant. Server needed to learn the menu along with what the food is made/cones with. Will not be returning.
