    Good came out way too fast after we ordered it. Scallops and shrimp tasted rubbery as if they had been microwaved. Food was Luke warm not hot as it should be since it supposedly came right off grill

    Be sure to check out the mysterious bathroom where somehow more people come out than went in. I hypothesized there was a sliding board from the roof or a secret portal or maybe even a bingo hall.
