Our granddaughter chose this restaurant for her birthday dinner. Great place for kids and for people who love to eat. Not gourmet by any means but not awful either much to my surprise. Salad bar, potato bar, seafood, meat and all the sides plus a dessert station. Unlimited refills on drinks.

Almost everything was under or over cooked. The spaghetti was matted together in clumps of about ten and the sauce looked greasy and gross. Nobody stirs anything, so everything has a crust on it. The Italian dressing has to go, it just has bad flavor. A big selection of below average food. The only bright spot was Kim, our waitress.

Great place with many,many choices. Senior discount daily. Great buy. Fresh food. Especially the salad vegetable bar. Excellent place to celebrate. Great for the whole family. Got to say the dessert section is very satisfying to any sweet tooth.

The bad: The floors were filthy, and many of the tables needed cleaned. The lady's room was quite gross. Many of the food items appeared as though they had been... More

They have excellent clam chowder, the salad bar is very fresh with a nice variety of salad fixings. We go there often and they have enough of a variety of food that we never get tired of going.
