Reviewed 5 September 2012

Been here several times for banquets and it is greasy flavorless standard banquet fair. Would never go out of my way to book this for any event.

“Best shrimp bisque”
Reviewed 6 July 2012

Have eaten here multiple times over the years and never been disappointed. Smoke, the owner, caters too and never fails to please. The food is always tastes great no matter what it is. No bad choices here.

“Excellent Sunday Brunch”
Reviewed 29 May 2012

Took our extended family there for Mother's Day Brunch. The door staff were quick to get us seated and to get us our drinks. The normal style here is a brunch that is absolutely delicious and varies from prime rib to seafood. There is a mix of fried, broiled and baked so everyone had something they really liked. The desert bar featured a strawberry and chocolate fountain that was the perfect end. Check times and prices as they can be a bit expensive on special occassions.

We ate here with friends who llive in the area. The place is modest, but the food is really good. So many dishes to choose from and they're all tasty.
