Went today for lunch with five family members. Jose took excellent care of us so be sure to ask if he is available. We all ordered salads and everyone was satisfied. The Hot Fresh Made Potato Chips were out of this world.

Service was GLACIALLY slow despite the restaurant not being busy at all. One of my sides came 10 minutes later than the meal. And worst of all, my medium-rare steak was almost well-done. Will not be returning or recommending.

The food was delicious. I had the shrimp and grits which was very tasty. What I liked most was the food was made to order so you could add and subtract ingredients. The service was ok, the waiter seemed a little distant. Yet I would...More

We had a small group, it varied in size from start to finish, 11-24 guests. We had excellent service and a good menu. The only concern is that we were in the tented area and had to adjust the thermostat every 10 minutes so that...More
