Don't understand all the changes in rewards, most coupons can't use, memu changed, sizes of plates smaller, some changes in food. I had the flat bread and it wasn't as good, new policy on chips and dip, don't get them if sitting in bar area free as before, can't understand the club now, So many changes for us older seniors...

We've eaten here many times. Never any bad food and service has always been excellent. All food is great. Easily accessible from Interstate 75.

Each time we visit this store, we get young, dismissive, condescending, arrogant male waiters and they must promote from within b/c the managers are the steroid versions of the waiters, only Creepier. The last time we visited, just before Christmas at around 4 pm, when it's slower, the waiter told me to "take a drink of my margarita and chill... More

My friend and I hadn't seen each on about 6 months. We met there and had a great meal and good service. It was a relaxing place to spend time catching up.

We were in the mood for the lighter version of pizza. The flatbread seems healthy & without all the guilt. The entire staff was super friendly. I like that the menu seems perfectly descriptive. Also our favorite beer Blue Moon is on the happy hour, 2 for 1 till 7PM.

This was one of the few restaurants open the day Hurricane Matthew visited Ocala. They opened at 4:00 p.m. and the place was packed. The wait staff was very busy but we were waited on fairly quickly and enjoyed an appetizer while waiting for our meal. The food was good and we were so thankful we found a place that... More

After about 5 minutes of being seated my husband asked a waiter who was our waiter as no one had taken our beverage order. So, the lady took our drinks and said our waiter will be with us in a moment. We watched her bring to our waiters attention that he had guests at his table. So, he then came... More

My wife and I stopped in on the way to Port Canaveral, beer was good and cold but the food was ok. The burrito I had looked great but was very dry inside, wife's guacamole burger was just average fare.

I like Chili's menu so I don't hesitate to stop there. Their appetizer type offerings suit my taste and budget.
