Very friendly staff but you have to look for your server... More

What I love about this place is that there is usually always a new item on the menu. The owners seem to enjoy bring new creations to their customers.

Food was horrible. Service is minimal. I felt sick afterwards and wondered if the food had been sitting too long. Table we sat in had grime on seats. Won't ever go back.

A little over priced. Food seems to sit to long. Not much in service. Fairly clean there are better choices in the area.
