This is certainly not a fancy restaurant, but good prices. The menu is not elaborate but they offer simple food with a very friendly wait staff.

It suffers greatly from being connected to the Wyndam Gardens which is a terrible, run down motel. It spreads to the Loon. People are very nice but the atmosphere is bad and the food only OK.
