    No more bring your own wine... Chef Don has gotten his liquor license- Congrats! Nice selection & you can add shots to their homeade juices & smoothies Kinda defeats the healthy part but still yummy!

    Basic menu: chicken, fish, shrimp, steak, and burgers! They do have a nice breakfast buffet! Good food but we waited an hour for our food......no exaggeration!

    Great food. The ambiance needs some work as does the wine list but the food was terrific.

    Had to wait forever for food. The rice was cold and soggy, and they ran out of my veggie the 1st time and forgot it the 2nd time. Had to wait 15 more mins for silverware. Will not eat here again.

    Food was mediocre, service was awful. Went at lunchtime. Met at door by waiter who lacked energy, looked at us and said "yes?". Ummm..we needed to be seated. Downhill from there.
