The food is perfectly serviceable and standard. The service is uncomfortable in that way that an overly friendly waiter can make it (all the times I've been there, it's been the same guy). He has this strange habit of, when saying you're not ready to order, of saying "Don't worry, take your time." and then coming back approximately 45 seconds later to see if one is ready.

The meatloaf is rather tasty, expect for the overcooked vegetables they like to pair with it.
