Liked everything except the cold draft coming past our table because the front entrance was propped open. Had to keep my coat on for the whole visit, but the food service etc was great

Food was very tasty, everyone was happy with their meal. The waitress was super cheery and made us feel like her only client! Ambiance is ok, don't like that it's in a casino but the casino is closed so that made it nicer.
