They are now located on Garners Ferry Road in Columbia. Have not visited the new location. Please read reviews before going, then decide.🤔

After a long week of work, wanted a nice place to sit down and have dinner and decided to give it a try. The guy playing the keyboard was great, the rest was just ok. They moved to Columbia about six months ago.

The food was great when it finally made it to the table but the waitress tried to give herself a $50 tip and acted very shocked when my husband ask for the rest of his change. Will not be going back.
