Had my high school reunion at this place and I was blown away by the decor of the restaurant. Very impressive inside, great for baby shower, private parties etc. Food is very good. The sliding doors completely separate you from restaurant noise.

Dinner prices for lunch. Three salads all over $13.00. Thai salad average, if I had more time I would have gone elsewhere.

Great first visit! I really enjoyed the chicken pot pie, and my fiancé gave the Kobe burger a thumbs up. Topped it off with apple cobbler. Excellent service from M!

Food is good, not great. Same with the service. I think it is hit or miss. We've been there several times and think it is just OK overall. My kids aren't particularly picky eaters, and they love to go out to eat, but even they...More

Four of went in for supper on a Monday night. It wasn't overly busy. The seating is comfortable sofa seats on either side of the table. Plenty of televisions to catch sports on. Lots of good cold beers to pick from. We had two appetizers,...More

I went there for dinner with my family. We all liked the seating which was almost like a sofa on each side of the table instead of individual chairs. I had the philly cheese steak sandwich and tots. It was very good. The meat was...More

This is NOT the place to go to celebrate a birthday. Went there with a party of 12. Service was poor, ordering was very difficult, server disappeared pretty much every time we needed something. Salads came out almost the same time as the food. Dressing...More
