He had reflux problems afterwards....

He also bought some fudge - he asked for a...

  • Hope it Gets Better

    This is a new restaurant so maybe they are still trying to work out problems but the food should not be one of them. I had Spagetti with Meat Sauce and it was only fair. The garlic bread was underdone but at least it had a fair amount of garlic. My waitress was friendly enough but seemed overwhelmed. Even the coffee was not that good. I doubt they...
