Staff was absolutely great in setting up tables for a 10+ person family dinner, including two toddler/infants. Food was great, service was great, and price was acceptable.

Great food & friendly staff. Just the place for a special dinner with friends or family. Sports enthusiasts can watch the latest games on several TVs.
