Diner Reviews
  • "Looks like a nursing home inside. Tired and worn atmosphere. No the place it used to be."

  • "Food was very good, however, service needs much improvement."

  • "Went here last night for valentines day. Had a reservation for 830 and was not seated until 845, no big deal but when our table was ready we were waved over to come sit instead of walked to our table. We never had a waiter or waitress. The host took care of us and took our order and we were never checked on for the rest of the night. We probably could have walked out and nobody would have known. We had 3 different people handle our check, one brought it, one took it to run my card and another person brought it back for me to sign. The service was absolutely the worst I have seen in any restaurant. The upside of this place is that it's byob and the food is very good and the prices are reasonable. Portions are large and it is very good."

  • "Food was good although the service was notably slow and we should have ordered the pizza as that is what we saw everyone around us eating; however we ordered from the menu and the food left a lot to be desired..."

  • "Terrible experience. Despite taking our reservation, main dining room was closed for a private party. Table provided in pizza/take-out section next door. I don't begrudge the operator booking a private party, but be straight when accepting reservations. A normal pleasant experience, been there in the past, was a crowded loud environment. We left quickly. Will have second thoughts of booking here in the future."
