Six people, 4 adult and 2 kids ate for $60. Also had two individuals singing and playing guitar table side and making rounds around the restaurant,... More

While working on a 2 week project in the area, a local suggested this restaurant for a change of pace. It was very good with good portions for a crew of big eaters.
