This is a small chain but the food and service is always good. I always get their entree salad and cold beer. The service is always fast and friendly.

My husband took me here for an early Birthday dinner and it was great. We had been here before and the food and service has always been worth spending a little more.

Quick to be seated. Food was good and hot. I got the ribs and chicken with slaw. A little more than I wanted to pay, but it was very good. Good service. Second time eating here and no complaints.

This poor restaurant has been going downhill for months. They either need someone in charge who understands the food business or to just zip it up and move on to the restaurant cemetery. First off, this visit was my second in a short time. Neither...More

Very nice place for lunch. The servers are a great mix of friendly and efficient. They get you what you need quickly and runners keep drinks full and clear the dishes. But they don’t rush you. If you need extra time, they’ll gladly give you...More
