Out of business. I have to write at least 50 characters for this to post. This place is no longer in business and should not be on this list anymore.

From my experience a couple yrs ago, the food wasn't very great. Service wasn't very good. I always walk past this place and I hardly ever see many customers. I don't know how they stay in business.

We got off to a poor start, but it went well after that. We were seated immediately, but then sat there unattended for what seemed more than five minutes. Maybe it is a pet-peeve, but I expected to get some attention very soon after I...More
