The food was absolutely great, we had a very kind and quick waiter (Matthew) I would definitely give him a 10/10 :) The food took a bit to come out but it was amazing, and the rolls... The rolls are outrageously good!

1st night of our stay we ate here, very basic but good food. There are better, but whilst staying at baymont inn this is perfect. Wish they had some real vegetarian alternative as not all of us ate meat.

Called to place to go order. Must have busy. On hold for 4 min. Food wasn't ready when I got there to pickup. Waitress was nice and got it together quickly. Offered me silverware! Calabash Combo did not disappoint!
