We ate here for lunch for the first time. I thought it was pretty good, not great. My wife's salad was enormous, she couldn't finish it all, but she loved it. I had a burger, it was a little burnt, but not too bad, still...More

I was so hopeful as I have been to other locations. Unfortunately, the food was very mediocre. I was so sick. Do not order the She-crab soup.More

Nothing spectacular here. A regular American style restaurant with nachos, burgers, seafood,salads, etc. I had the Barbecue Bacon Cheeseburger and it was excellent. It's very loud but could be because we were there on a Saturday night about 8pm. Our server was good.

Really nice menu with lots of options from salads, sandwiches, burgers, steaks and seafood. Love their grilled chicken with cheese and ham. Great salads. Nice place for dinner for larger parties because they have so many options. Service was very attentive

The night of my visit to this location had live entertainment, and it was a pleasant surprise, but it was a bit loud. Our server was very pleasant and apologetic for the long wait we had on our order. The manager was also very accomplished...More

Very good lunch experiences during their busy times near KSU Center. Nice range of menu choices. Very good salads, soups, salmon, and bread pudding. Sabrina even made me Lattes to go with desserts. Great service! Nice inside and outside seating. Full bar. Very clean restrooms.

I do not recommend this location for a business dinner. Shrimp was rotting and manager was unapologetic. He asked if we had ever eaten seafood.
