Ugh, where to start. Salad was good. Service very slow. Rib and crab cake entree was horrible. Crab cake was more like crab mush. Ribs were so tiny. Crab cake was about two ounces big. Potato probably weighed a pound.More

Sundays after 6:00pm burgers are half price. I don't care for the fries as they are shoestring. I prefer steak fries anytime.
