OBVIOUSLY all the good reviews here were written by OWNERS UNDER DIFFERENT NAMES. This place is a JOKE. One waitress runs the WHOLE operation, because she has DIRT on the owners. She is BEYOND rude to customers. The food is

The food was fair the service was poor. The couple sitting at an adjacent table agreed, if you were a regular/local the wait staff was very attentive. If not - eat up and get out of our way because you are very much an inconvenience to us.
