Our food tonight looked and tasted amazing! Even our fussy eating children thoroughly enjoyed their meals and we got way more than we bargained for at a very reasonable price. The service was wonderful from all staff, including the new staff that appeared to be starting their first shift.
Thank you so much, we will definitely be back.
