The experience here was absolutely outstanding. The food was flavorful, the service was top notch. The only downside was that my mother had found the women’s restroom to be somewhat untidy and there was a lack of hand soap in the restroom.

We went here during the COVID pandemic. Our service was great and the food was as awesome as usual! You need to go several times to know exactly what you should order for your liking, but you can’t go wrong with one of their suggested meals! I can’t eat a lot at one meal, but my husband certainly can do so! This is the perfect type of meal for us! Staff was very attentive and making sure we had everything that we needed.

Amid new dine out rules it was a very pleasant experience. First dine out in about 3 months and felt good to go to a restaurant and have a sense of normalcy. Food was great and service was as well.

It was good overall. Services was excellent and very helpful with explaining the menu, etc. the foods are good with the price that we paid for: $30pp for dinner with 3 appetizers, 3 choices of proteins (meats), rice and a dessert. The place is nice and clean. We enjoyed it a lot.

Great happy hour menu and value. Although The wings are not on HH menu they are phenomenal and a must try. Love the garlic shrimp. Tried several of the steaks and loved them all. Fun vibe with friendly service. Will be back many times.

For the price that they are charging, you can get better quality beef else where. The beef served there are very chewy and tough.

Initial server was pushy and rude (female). She quickly took our order then advised that she was rolling off. The second server was unavailable and hardly checked on us. The food brought to the table was not clearly explained... e.g., we order multiple orders of various meats -- for both sides of the table. The meat was plated on one plate without explanation. Hence, we were "waiting" for the additional plates. Servers failed to check on us as mentioned and failed to change out our grates. Annoyed by the lack of service, I asked for a napkin from a different employee. He was quick to scold me, saying, "he works the front and that I should ask my server". How rude! Terrible service. I guess it was bothersome since he, and our initial server + another employee were on a lunch break. If you are on break -- consider eating in the back -- not at the table next to me, a paying customer.
