The food and service is excellent! Relaxed atmosphere and it's always a fun time. They can accommodate small to larger groups. If you get the full course of cheese, entree and dessert it can be pricey, but they do have specials and deals. Great collection...More

This may be my favorite restaurant. The food is excellent and the service is good. I don't understand the negative reviews about this location. I traveled twice the distance to go to this restaurant because I liked it much better than Red Bank.

I don't mean this as a judgment but I have to start with the fact that our waiter barely spoke English. I couldn't understand a lot of what he was explaining. My kids thought I was being ridiculous but when he brought out Sprite instead...More
