Great food, fun atmosphere, and good service. Big portions and if you like garlic you won't be disappointed, and I love garlic. Never had a bad meal there

The 7 of us were seated quickly and received our food very fast. So fast especially since Prom and FDIC had the house packed. The wait staff and manager are awesome and very attentive. You won't leave hungry

We went to have an Easter meal with our family for dinner. The place was empty. The food was OK priced and was average tasting. Nothing spectacular. It is a fun approach with the decor and family servings. It does make it hard to know...More

We are coming into town for the DCI Championships and need a place for a large group of parents to get together for an early lunch on Friday August 12. Everyone would need to be on separate checks but would probably be a group of anywhere from 25-50 people. This is the first time we have all tried to get together so not sure just how many people will be able to make it. But we need a definite place and then can get a more accurate number. Is this something your restaurant could handle on a Friday?
