I had lunch at this restaurant with a group of friends. First and foremost, our waitress was pleasant and accommodating when we had to wait for one of our group to arrive. Food was delivered without much wait once we placed our orders. Portions were generous and food was hot. We ordered a variety of different sandwiches and all were... More

Had a business meeting with about 35 in attendance. Banquet room was adequate but full. Good food and great service. Attendees were given a choice of entree. I choose the Fish and Chips. Portions were huge! My filet was HuGe! Cooked well and tasty.

My husband and I were visiting from out of state and met up with my Brother in Law for lunch. We first sat at the bar and had a very good bartender. She was friendly and attentive not just to us, but to other patrons as well. We then moved to a table and had a great waiter. I'm celiac... More

I came here with a friend for lunch. The service was average and the prices for lunch were over the top expensive. We both got a cup of onion soup and Cobb salad. We had water for our drinks. The soup was too salty and the salad was nothing special. The bill came to $52.00. Ridiculous for lunch! We will... More

Service was Mezza Mezza although we dined in the early evening and few patrons were in the restaurant at the time but there did seem to be a lot of servers working. The highlight of the meal was the clam chowder served piping hot in a bread bowl. The entrees were just okay since some of the food was hot... More

Thank you Ryan, Mgr and Erin, Server for recognizing a funky sandwich when the see it and taking care of it without question. Expensive for what it is. Hoison pork bellies great. Fresh coffee really good. Easy on/off 95.

$14.50 for a burger and fries is kind of ridiculous. Seems as though everything in the menu was around same price. Portions not overly big for price. Burger was decent, but not $14.50 decent. Kid's meal much more reasonably priced. Only plus was that place is big enough for lunch crowd.

This will be one of our more brief reviews. In summary, our lunch was just too expensive. There was nothing exceptional at all in either flavor, presentation or anything else. Just as an example, a Cobb salad (with what appeared to be a base of iceberg lettuce / not sure) was $16.00 ($15.90 to be exact). With coffee, tax and... More

Went for an early dinner with my husband. The Cobb salad was more expensive than a burger. The chili comes in a bread bowl so it is more expensive than necessary. They actually charge for beverage refills, $3 each glass of unsweetened iced tea is ridiculous. Atmosphere is ok wait staff is not very attentive. There are better choices in... More

I remember as a boy hearing stories of men walking about the streets during the Depression years with sandwich boards advertising, "Eat At Joe's" (Of course, that was in the 1930s and doesn't apply here.) This restaurant chain serves upscale eats for both lunch and dinner. (We don't know about breakfast.) The menu offers appetizing plates that are priced just... More
