Lets get right to it. Overpriced, poor service, salad bar that is disgustingly dirty. Got our food, cold, wrong items, server with major attitude. Can find plenty of places that do a much better job.

We were here for the colossal burger. It was ok. Very pricey. Not anything that I would pay that much to ever get again, though. The sides were ok. They don’t have the small rolls they used to serve anymore. Their salad bar was ok....More
