We used to go there a lot and then they changed owners. The quality of the food went way down and we also found a dead rat in the bathroom.

The meat platter was overwhelming...thankfully well cooked. And it was good, just the presentation was odd. The plated items were good and varied. This is a local place and we enjoyed the atmosphere. Good over all.
