If it wasnt for the view i would've given them 1 star. All 5 of our meals were below sub par. Will not go back. Eat at your own risk!

Thank you for the review! I apologize about your wait. Even I have fallen victim to this. We try our best to estimate, but don't always get it right. Next time you are in, ask for Nicole. More
