The service was great! At the same time the menu is limited. Only one omelette choice which does not make sense. The shrimp omelette was disappointing. Made with can shrimp and not worth the price.

I know what to expect. The service is always great. The food is always good. I think it’s over priced. The cocktails and appetizers are delicious but as an advertised “happy hour” are overpriced for the quantity in my opinion.
