Really enjoy the two for $20 specials with appetizer. Service is usually slow and sometimes very slow even during non peak hours. Appetizers didn't arrive until meal was served!

I keep saying I won't go back but here we were again as we came with another couple and they selected the restaurant. Service was average but the food is just so-so and not very appealing. I suppose for twenty bucks one can't be too selective. It always seems noisy and there are always families, probably because a family can... More

Ordered the double crunch shrimp which were overlooked and on the edge of burnt. Eatable but tiny... Beer was fair, not real cold. Typical chain restaurant food and service but not bad.

Stopped for a quick sandwich at about 5 pm. There were more employees than customers. The selection of sandwiches was sparce. I ended up due to no selection ordering a hamburger. My husband a club sandwich. There were only about 6 customers yet it took 23 minutes to get our food. Husband's club sabdwich was average. My hamburger was burned,... More

We met another couple here for lunch. Had a hard time finding the restaurant because it was sort of hidden amongst the trees and in a little strip mall. No problem parking and we were seated immediately. Service was good, our drinks were never dry. I had the steak and asked it to be medium rare. It came out medium... More

Our server Lana was great! My parents have been going there for over 15 years and Lana always knows what they want to drink. My mom is in a wheelchair and they always accommodate her and my dad. THANK YOU!!

This location obviously has management issues. Took twenty minutes to get two drinks from the bar to our table. They use some mysterious system where our serving waitress is not allowed to deliver bar drinks. Unfortunately this system does not function. This was on a night when the bar had 5 customers and the restaurant was about half full. This... More

The service is attentive but the food is just okay. We all took advantage of the special twenty dollar dinner for two which included an appetizer to share and an entree selected from about five choices. We ordered the onion rings and a Chinese Chicken Salad each. The onion rings weren't the best and looked as though the oil in... More

Went here for a late lunch, and it took ten minutes to finally decide on something that was not swimming in grease or gravy. I finally decided to order the Asian shrimp salad. It must be difficult to make, because it took twenty minutes to get my lunch. It was terrible.. Very little taste at all. I was sorry I... More
