In spite of the above average reviews this place needs improvement in the following areas: 1. Instruct wait staff to deliver food without putting their thumb inside the plate. I observed all wait staff doing this after our waitress brought our meals to our table....More

I've eaten here twice. Most of the food is nothing to write home about, but the service is good. Get there early to avoid a long wait for a table. My son says the sausage is amazing. Their pancakes are good. Don't bother with the...More
