Review by Raulna Y. on Yelp

Great service! Great food! Great company! This is the place to enjoy a bottle of wine or two. Our waitress rocked! (Shout out to Amanda!) The manager checked in on us! We had a wonderful time eating, drinking, and catching up. We ordered the potato chips with blue cheese dressing on the side, meatballs appetizer, brussel sprouts, two large salads, buttermilk fried chicken with mashed potatoes and green beans, and the yellow tail with mashed potatoes and asparagus. We ate “BANANAGEDDON” for dessert. Our party of four had a blast! Everything was DELICIOUS!
