Stopped in here for breakfast at about 10am and drinks were being served. We weren't impressed but the food and service were pretty good. A decent amount of food for a decent price.

Have been to this restaurant several times in the last couple of years. Last year it was a fun place with reasonably priced good food and service. This year things seem to have changed. The worst change is the wait for food to be served...More
