We went for lunch earlier this week. The service was great as is the food. We had fish tacos and field greens with goat cheese. Portions were just the right size.

I have been here numerous times with family, friends and during business meetings. The food is consistently good and the service top notch. The only down side, it gets REALLY noisey when it's busy.

I have had the exact same experience at multiple restaurants in this family of restaurants: The food is pretty good (I had a bacon cheeseburger), but the service is so intrusive and annoying that I try and avoid this chain whenever I can. I understand...More
