“Old people eat dinner early, be prepared to wait at 5”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2012

Yes, and I am one of them! Food is fine for the price but I seldom get seated immediately and the bar is a joke for spillover space. Acceptable as a chain and the servers are pleasant. Some of the special, rotating menu items are pretty good.

“Always good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2012

This is one of my family's favorite restaurants, for any occasion. This was our first time at this particular location, and we were not disappointed. It was very nice of them to let us stay as long as we did, as we were a large party eating on a busy Saturday afternoon.

“Can't recommend”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2012

Overpriced, waited 10 minutes on a Tuesday evening even though plenty of seating (understaffed). Food quality was marginal. Ordering inaccurate.

“Good food, good portions and good service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2012

The food is always good and so is the service. You can order as much salad and bread as you desire. The place also has a nice atmosphere.

“Good food and service”

A busy place with friendly staff. We arrived just before the rush and were seated immediately. Friendly staff who were willing to do whatever was needed.
