I've recently discovered I'm gluten sensitive. Both the hostess, and the waitress were extremely knowledgeable of the gluten free options on the menu (there are a lot!!) and they were so sweet in making sure that I didn't have any questions or concerns. Also, all of our food was AMAZING! It was hard to go back to work :)

Order the 8oz Filet and was cooked just right. Creamy Parm dressing is outstanding and meals were reasonably priced. Our waitress was wonderful and got a free dessert for my birthday.

Our waitress was so nice and sweet. The food was excellent. I don’t like turkey at all but that was the best turkey I have ever had. Food was amazing. Hats off to the chef

Menu items have changed due to their higher costs. Which we really have to pay for. I didn't get what I really wanted because of high cost. Just didn't seem worth it. I can only afford to go once a yr anyway.
