We were invited to a conference lunch. Usually large group meals aren't my favorite. However, the lunch was served in a quiet back room. The menu had some great choices, the food was delicious and the service was good.

Three of us dined on a rainy weekday night. The service was outstanding and the food was surprisingly good and the prices were very reasonable. The ribs were wonderful and the honey chicken entree was AMAZINGLY good, can't wait to try that again.
