We went there for our granddaughter's 17th birthday and had a fun time. The food was good, slightly over priced tho. Our grill master was fun and did several new things that we hadn't seen before.

We (Mom & Dad) went with our UNI son and a friend of his plus our teenaged daughter for supper. It was a good time at the hot grill with chef displaying a good entertaining cooking show.

It's a very popular place that is evident. The atmosphere isn't bad. The service is good. The food just ok. There was however something missing. Just ok.
