We really liked the atmosphere and the friendliness of the staff. We were starved when we arrived and had more food than we could eat. Really delicious!!!

Good lunch not great, service average, feels like your eating in a basement. Lacks natural light. Waitress was very chatty to an extent of disrupting our lunch but we were on vacation so it did not bother us.
