Went to lunch here based on the good reviews. We found the service to be rude and slow. Food was average. Cleanliness was poor. But the nail in the coffin is the scam of not taking credit cards and directing you to THEIR atm.

Ok this one is easy clams, clams, clams! Excellent. We eat in the pub/bar part because it has a sort of noisy busy, fun atmosphere. The wait staff is great and can handle the crowd. There is a quieter dining room area. We come here...More
