    We had a very good time there. I really like Melissa who served us. She is very cheerful and funny! Food was good. Piano man is very talented. He asked us if we are Japanese or Chinese. He played us a Chinese song and we were very impressed. Had a good chat with him before we left.

    By far one of the worst dinner experiences I’ve ever had. My filet was so dry (cooked to medium) the butter compote on top was more like a paste. My husband’s fish and chips was so bland and unseasoned he didn’t even finish it.

    The meat was really tough and flavorless. Definitely a lower grade of beef than you would expect. Other dishes were just okay. Waitress was nice.
