Terrible. Food cold. Not a lot to offer. Most hot trays were empty. Service awful. Waitress gave ya dirty answer napkins. She never came back for drink refills. Cashier spent all his time on phone. No clean plates. Felt like we were being pranked.

The selection was ok. I wish the menu was a lil different. However, my boyfriend took full advantage of the meats there. I enjoyed the shrimp and fondue dessert. The price we paid for dinner was $10.99.
