We had the rib eye steak to share and it was excellent quality and prepared to our specifications. Our don had the marinated sirloin and it was truly fantastic. The fried crab claws as an appetizer were also very good. The best were the buttered...More

My best friend and I came in just about 30 minutes before closing and we still received good food and great service. I got their signature salad and it was amazing. Although I was a little confused by their house made ranch dressing, it was...More

I'd like to say the food is as good as it used to be years ago, but it is not. Our crab fingers had no real flavor unless you count the lemon & cocktail sauce. The chicken fingers were alright, but that's always a staple,...More

I've never had anything that wasn't good there. It's often packed...but there is a reason for that. Their salads are really good & fresh...which matters. The broiled salmon salad is probably my favorite. The NY strip is also very good. I'm a fan...if you have...More

It started with a friendly helpful staff. The house salad is very generous and tasty, not your typical iceberg lettuce fragments with thousand island dressing. The prime rib was cooked to order and the baked potato and garlic mashed were excellent. I would definitely return....More

The title says it. Typical chain restaurant. Not bad but not great, either. Staff is friendly. Not sure why the chain name but I didn't notice any reason to dream about California. Maybe Mama Cass would.

Love eating here. Always a great dish and salads. Good stuff. It's a little more expensive than some of the other higher end chains but better quality if you ask me

Hi Audrey, I'm sorry to hear you were disappointed in your dining experience, our baby back ribs top the list as a guest favorite. The danish pork ribs we serve are slow cooked so the meat is fall-off-the-bone tender. We are committed to creating consistent,...More
