I came here for a business trip. What an incredible restaurant. Great service from the moment I walked up. Friendly staff, great food. The meats that they make in house are incredible. I had the burger, cooked perfectly and served hot. Beautiful restaurant.

Well, on Mother's Day, I pointed out to my wife a guy at the next table who was wearing a T shirt and shorts. I did not think it was appropriate, not on Mother's Day, but who am I?
