Good food. Staff is nice. Menu large. Best for groups. Wait can be long. Be prepared. Food is worth it.

This is a chain, but it does not feel like one. The food is family style, so it is cheaper than most restaurants. All the food I have tried is AMAZING, the staff is friendly, the atmosphere is inviting. And, the cake. That cake is...More
