This place has changed many times. Now it's sit down dining instead of you ordering. Waitress was ok, not very attentive and got an order wrong so ended up only eating only half of it. Water isn't filtered I believe because it tasted terrible. Plus side was the food was quick.

Love this place! Great to go on dates or even just a relaxed meal. The dining area is well furnished and looks good. And the food is great! I have been here more than once and would go again in a heart beat! Worth the money and time!
