    I have a hard time ordering food when the menus are dirty. I thought just mine was but my husband’s menu was just as dirty. The food wasn’t amazing and the service was little slow. We had to ask for a few things a few times.

    The food is great. However, the portions are quite small for the price. My salad and entree were both quite small.
