Had a family dinner here, including 2 young granddaughters. Waitress(Susie) was great as regards telling us about various meals. Service and food were great. Allowed us to have a very relaxing meal out with family. Came here in last and will return in future.

You go here for people watching and there is plenty of that to be had trust me. The food is secondary. It is nothing special either way. It lacks passion but isn’t bad.

We sat outside and thoroughly enjoyed the lunch we had a Bubala's! There were five of us and each loved their meal and had a great time. Unfortunately, I don't remember the name of our server, but he was entertaining and efficient. Great experience!
