Went for a late lunch on a Tuesday, only 1 other table eating in the restaurant and at least 3 servers yet it took almost 20min for our drinks!! Got 1 salad each (even though we both asked for another) asked for cheese and pepper so he left and he returned with our meals and the graters... and gave us each exactly 1 turn of the pepper and cheese grinder! i asked for a bit more cheese and he said he had to get another cube. 40 min later he returned with the bill an debit machine at the same time and waited for my husband to pull out his wallet and pay. We had finished eating about 15min earlier and even stacked our cups and plates at the end of the table. Will never return!

Went for dinner on a Sunday night. It wasnt really busy. The waitress was very friendly. The food was very good. It was way more than we could eat. Salad came with the meal - The waitress even asked if we would like more salad - which was a tasty Caesar salad (or you could have garden) . Then we were given two coupons for $10.00 off each meal for the next visit. I didnt find the restaurant dirty at all. It was a very enjoyable experience.

Sometimes the service is terribly slow while other times it is quick and the service is really good. The food is always good but we find depending on the server some don't take the time to check how things are, if we need drinks refilled and seem to take incredibly long to bring food out even with low levels of customers. I'd like to rate this restaurant higher but with the 50/50 experiences with the waitresses I just couldn't give it more than an average rating.

We popped in for a quick bite mid-afternoon, and were happy to find that the lunch menu (with its quick-service promise) was still in effect until 3pm. Service was good and quick.
