Food was freshly made and hot. I was the only person there at the time and yet one table remained dirty the whole time I ordered and waited for my food. The Marcydiner rating 5-no screaming kids.

I was looking for another restaurant, and walked in by accident. decided to stay and try it. It was DEEEE-LISH! Very good and slightly different than what I'm used to. Great size helpings and traditional dishes. Would definitely return!
