Meatballs had a weird texture, and was a little dry on the inside, and the size of it did not help the cooking. Mash potatoes were a redemption, but only if you enjoy chunky mash (which we did). Salad bar was underwhelming, atmosphere wasn’t great....More

I had the grilled chicken with chips and vegetables and my fiancé had the three meatballs with mash and cranberries. Both were delicious! Service was fast and restaurant was very comfortable.
