This was our first experience with this local chain of upscale diners and we enjoyed it very much. Servers were prompt, friendly and helpful. We thought the menu had a lot of interesting and compelling choices at very reasonable price points. Our servings size was sufficient without being excessive, and we thought it was very good. We shared a salmon dinner with a pineapple salsa on a bed of jasmine rice that was tasty. We also shared an order of lettuce wraps, and we got a plateful. We have had better, but we still enjoyed these. Another diner ordered the spaghetti plate and it appeared delicious, which she confirmed. We enjoyed a custom Bloody Mary drink where you could choose a number of garnishes. The restaurant was very busy, and we could see why. Interesting menu, nice bar scene, attentive service, reasonable prices and good food. Not gourmet, perhaps, but solid. What is not to like?

Lunch was well presented, very good tasting and complimented by very friendly service. You might try to avoid the noontime crowds because the wait can be 20+ minutes. A vast menu presentation, wide open eating areas separated by sparten spindles, bar available for eats and drinks. Lots of parking but may have to walk a few hunded yards

I ate there twice with my elderly parents this month. They feature build it yourself burgers, pizza, salad, and Bloody Mary’s.You can get any and all toppings so it comes out just like you would want it.
Multiple meat and veggie options. Meet was cooked to perfection.

The bloody Mary was too peppery and seem to be lacking in vodka, do I did order the $5 “top shelf” drink so maybe shouldn’t have been surprised.

Stuffed to overflowing by the end of the meal, because the portions were huge. Staff was friendly and attentive. Knowledgeable about gluten issues.

Noise level high.

Nice outdoor area when weather is good.

Went there with two other friends-met around 3:30. Nice and quiet so we would have the time to talk and catch up. We stayed until 6:30 and by that time-super noisy. could hardly hear each other. I did tip the waitress generously since we were there so long, but there still were open tables when we left.
They do have drink and appetizer specials.
Two in group ordered Fish - said it was average.
I ordered the Chicken Fettucini Alfredo and had to send the chicken back. Tasted as if someone had opened a salt shaker and poured salt on top. Not impressed.
Key Lime Pie for dessert was good for Minnesota, but didn't meet Florida standard.
Excellent service.
