They tried to seat us right by the door, but I said no. It was very cold out and I didn't want to have the cold air hitting us Everytime the door opened. The service was OK but she was new so it took a little longer. My meal was very good. I had grilled chicken, broccoli and sweet potato... More

Service was terrible. One person in our party did not get his meal until we were all finished eating. Food was mediocre.

It's hard to watch what you eat when they are now charging extra for a salad with your meal! Last year we learned that they did away with Italian, and French salad dressing. We discovered hot bacon dressing. Very, very good. We don't go out often and recently we went there and now no bacon salad dressing. People return to... More

The food was good and plentiful. Most of the customers were young, and although it was a work day, none seemed to be in a hurry to get back to work, so it was a pretty relaxed atmosphere. Wait staff was courteous and efficient. My son loves the place!

Not impressed with the server or management. I needed a drink (something fierce) so I hit the call waitress button on the little box thingy. The waitress came and got the drink and that was it. Than the manager came over and asked if we needed something, we said no. And she's like "well you hit the page button". I... More
