Food was average, it wasn’t bad, just not worth waiting 60 minutes for it. I should have gotten the sushi, that looked much better than the other food. Waitress had no personality, but the server who kept refilling the waters was fantastic, he would make...More

It's fun to sit at the grill and watch the show, but the food also is good, and the prices are reasonable. I've been coming here for 15 years, and I've never been disappointed. It's a great place for parties, special occasions, birthdays, etc. They...More
