We went there last Saturday night 30 minutes before closing due to a late performance. We were treated wonderfully and not rushed one bit. Josh gave us great service and the food was great.

Rude waitress, it was as if we were a bother. No wonderful dark bread was served at our table. The blooming onion was luke warm and greasy. Our drinks were not refilled. The manager was not really interested in our comments.
