Lunch buffet or anything a'la carte; you won't be disappointed. Service is also excellent. The only minus is that this looks a bit too much like a pub.

Local retired and semi-retired folks hang out over beer.

The interior of the restaurant gives mixed feelings, it's very american with statue of liberty & usa license plates. The lunch buffet is great and there is allways nice dishes to eat. Food is mainly chinese & thai oriented.
