Rated 5 out of 5 by from The restaurant was pretty busy but we were seated quickly and ordered our drinks. Our waitress had six tables that were ordering or getting their food. She was amazing. She was quick getting our dinner order, bringing our salads and the entree was served just as we finished our salads. In addition to her great service, it was the best meal I have eaten there. YUM!~
