Prime rib sandwich was delicious! Also had Beef Mushroom Lentil soup, one of the best soups, I've ever had! We talked to the manager and they only have one other location, which is in Los Angles.

Service was fine, but we weren't expecting a take out kind of place. My dinner was good but my husbands sandwich was on very stale hard bread.

Not as good as the real deal in Beverly Hills, but the food was tasty and filling. The price was a little higher than I expected, but not over the top.

While on a recent visit to Southcoast Plaza, we decided to have lunch here. We had eaten at one of their restaurants a couple of months ago and decided to try their more casual dining venue. After placing your order, you're given a number to...More

Came for lunch at 1130 to beat the lunch crowds ... apparently they don't staff for that and I wait fun a line with three other people for ten minutes. The food is simple but tastes great. Lunch cost me $25 for soup sandwich and...More

To start, I do enjoy Lawry's prime rib and the Tam O'Shanter restaurants and was expecting a positive experience here. The sandwich prices are similar to Tam, but my sandwich anyway, was not similar in value. When it was brought to table, I thought of...More
