Really nice menu with lots of options from salads, sandwiches, burgers, steaks and seafood. Love their grilled chicken with cheese and ham. Great salads. Nice place for dinner for larger parties because they have so many options. Service was very attentive

Very good lunch experiences during their busy times near KSU Center. Nice range of menu choices. Very good salads, soups, salmon, and bread pudding. Sabrina even made me Lattes to go with desserts. Great service! Nice inside and outside seating. Full bar. Very clean restrooms.

I do not recommend this location for a business dinner. Shrimp was rotting and manager was unapologetic. He asked if we had ever eaten seafood.
