We love this place. My family and I come here every few months. The food is always fantastic. The service is always efficient. We love the endless salad bowl with our pasta dinners. It is a chain restaurant, but in my opinion this one really stands above the clouds.

A great restaurant. Good food. Good service. The manager (if he's there) always visits our table and says hello.

Service was courteous, prompt and helpful. All you can eat soup, salad was fine.... Chicken tetrazzini (a signature dish) was a complete let down. Sauce tasted like it came from a can. Mounds of chicken turned out to be one slice of breast, not grilled. Very disappointing for the money. Appetizers tasted like they came out of a budget grocery... More

In the area and thought where better place to watch the US Election (Go Hillary) unfortunately customer service was poor. Not our first visit, servers never seem happy. Food is decent for it's price point. Yet it's lost in the customer service. They must have been hoping for a Trump victory .

My granddaughter and myself went there for lunch today.The restaurant is bright and smells good. My granddaughter had a pasta dish which she really liked. She had a cheesecake for dessert and they have a choice of 3 toppings which is nice. The size of the portion was large.I had a caesar salad which was good. The waitress was friendly... More

Service good but the place was empty. Ordered zucchini app. Very thin and greasy. I had a garden house salad with chicken breast on top. Salad was ok but the chicken was very thin, maybe 4 oz, Didn't look like it. My fiancé had a pizza which he seemed to enjoy.
