"Loved the atmosphere, very lively, but fun. Service overall seemed to be a problem, plenty of help wandering around but took forever for everything. Drink orders, menus, food and getting anyones attention at all. Appetizers were ordered and our meals, but even after 3 requests, my sons soup was bought along with our dinners and then he didn't get his dinner till he finished his soup. A big pet peeve of mine is when you order a $35.00 dinner and then to charge you for a second glass of iced tea, in a glass that is filled with ice and 3 sips later its empty to me is ridiculous. How much does that cost 3cents. Still loved the place, we had a fun time and I would go back again, Food was good, large portions but nothing over the top."

"Went with a party of 6 for a celebration. Our waiter Ken was delightful and really on top of things without being intrusive. We had some beef dinners, some seafood and a pasta dish, all were delicious, Fresh seafood was cooked perfectly, prime rib delicious also and cooked as requested. My one and only complaint was that dinners were all at LEAST $30.00 or more and although we all ordered salad bar a price of $9.00 per person was very expensive, There was nothing over the top on the salad bar and really, how much does some lettuce and tomatoes cost. If you have to charge something, how about $5.00 a person, (like the salad bar). Otherwise excellent and I would go back."
