We sat for at least 15 minutes without anyone waiting on us while everyone else that came in after us was waited on. Not a friendly wait staff. Was not sure if we were to seat ourselves when we came in. Can't rate the food, since we never got any. Can't even rate the coffee or water because we didn't get any of that either.
