I only ordered sides (mashed potatoes, broccoli, side salad and steamed veggies) and they were all horrible, no seasoning. The bartender was really nice.

Service was lackluster and the food was horrible. My fish was burnt. Side dishes were dry and bland. Lukewarm for my son and his girlfriend. Waiter was too busy to care. Worst meal of my entire trip!!!
