Honestly gone downhill which is sad service was ok but the service was good! Everyone working hard. $11 for fried pickles for 17 slices of fried pickles with over half of them being end pieces. Also the fries were not great either just tasted bland. Sad to see as I used to love this place!

It's sad to see how far this place has gone downhill. Me and my family used to love this place. The food is still decent, but the service is terrible, me and my family stood by the front for nearly 20 minutes waiting to be seated, and the hostess came to the front and just ignored us several times. There are constantly children running around screaming and no one says anything. It felt like I was in a Chuck E. Cheese not a restaurant.

Food was average. Appetizers are tasty but with where they are priced are basically a scam. $11 for 5 small cheesy breadsticks is kind of insane.
