Nice waitress. French onion soup had croutons that turned to just thick mush, very thin cheese. Quesadilla had very little queso - just a lot of peppers and onions —and no salsa at first. Friend’s hamburger and onion rings was good. Just overall not impressed...with food. Manager took the soup off the bill. I couldn’t eat it.More

We started out okay ordering our Coffees when we were seated BUT when we ordered our dessert it took over 30 minutes and no server came to our table. We finally had to go up to someone and ask what happened. We received a terrible...reason and will not return. Actually any reason would not have been accepted. The OWNER NEEDS TO STAFF the restaurant better and MAYBE THE SERVICE WILL IMPROVE.More

This $8.00 special before 11:00am is good value because it includes coffee. The potatoes were piping hot and fresh and the bacon was crispy. Marble rye toast was not extra. The presentation of the meal on a large plate with a side slice of orange...was appealing. We're coming back.More

Food was good! The butter chicken bowl is a must. The service was very poor. I’m not sure if our server was having a bad day but she was very slow and unfriendly.

My husband, son and I went to this location for breakfast on December 28th. Our server was pleasant. Our food came to the table rather quickly when my husband noticed his eggs Benedict was soft poached and not hard poached like he had asked. The...waitress came to check in when my son and I had nearly finished our meals. He told her that it was prepared wrong and that he would not eat it. We could not wait for another one to be prepared. It took a very long time to get our bill at which time I was advised that we weren’t charged for the KIDS APPLE JUICE and that’s “the best she could do”. My husband had to go to McDonald’s for a breakfast sandwich but paid for a meal that was ill prepared and he didn’t eat... my family and I do all of our private events at this location with 30+ people each time and I am confident in saying that I will NEVER be back at this location nor will I recommend it to anyone else. There are so many other places to eat why waste your time with a franchise that hasn’t even figured out how to “make it right”?More

Horrible service! Pasta Tues would’ve been better if we got the menu for it first. Yah, it’s NOT from reg menu. Let’s say the 12.95 menu sucks! Did I mention terrible service?!! Chicken parm was dry and seafood pasta was not a rose sauce. Bleh!

We waited by the "Please wait to be seated" sign for almost 10 minutes, with no sign of any employees to greet us. I visited this restaurant once before but on my second visit I must say it was a bad experience. We ordered Stella...pitcher & appetizer and the waiter gave us the price for both, few minutes later the waiter came back advising that they can’t offer Stella pitcher only glasses and I couldn’t understand why they can’t offer it, if they have it on the menu and there is a price for it so we changed our order for the beer. Then the waiter came back with a lady called Venetia Barrett, she claimed that she is a manager, indicated that we can’t have the appetizer that we ordered. Never coming here again.More

My family and I (total of 5 people, 4 adults and a youth) were there this past weekend for my birthday brunch. We had been to the Symposium Cafe in Milton and it was a very nice experience, so we decided to give this location...a shot. Well, our experience started well, with attentive service and the food was good - not great. My poached eggs, I asked for medium, were poached hard, for example. Halfway through the meal, the server disappeared. Tables around us noticed this as well. Some newly-seated patrons got up and left because they had been seated for 25 minutes, and no one came to even offer them water. We waited patiently for our server as we wanted to order some cake to share. After 30 minutes of not seeing him, my wife went inside to speak to the manager and order our cake to go. Upon getting home and having our cake there, the pieces were old and stale, hard on the outside and dry in the middle. I ordered the exact same cake (Hummingbird) from the Milton location and it was delicious! Let's just say we will not be patrons at this particular establishment again.More

$5.00 burger/chicken/fish sandwiches, all day, every Monday...excellent value. $4.00 Pabst pint with a sandwich order....perfect. My fish sandwich today was delicious....hot, lightly battered fish pieces with generous, fresh toppings of red onion/lettuce/tomato/pickle....on a soft, fresh brioche bun...real quality. Nice rustic Italian decor atmosphere. Our server...was friendly and on-point with service. We will be back to this location.More

We decided to have a later breakfast and this was the first choice of our host. We sat indoors and had quick table service. Menu choices met patron expectations and we agreed that a future return was merited. I especially liked the decor. This would...have rated excellent but we had to remind our server about refilling our coffee cups.More
