Staff is super nice, but quality & presentation is disappointing. Hubs & I came in for a late lunch on a Friday. They were busy enough, but not slammed. We were seated right away. We ordered salads & nachos. Appetizer looked good at first but as we started to eat a little we could see & taste extra water. I... More

We were pleased with the service and quality of the food. It's a chain like Applebee's or Chile's, so quality is consistent. As with most places like this, it's loud and pretty standard fare.

Very nice place with good food, reasonable prices, very friendly staff and great customers. We visited their twice during our visit. Food was excellent along with the service and atmosphere. Very friendly staff. We sat at the bar and had a great time with the other customers and received some southern hospitality.

I'm uncertain about previous ratings since I had a wonderful lunch there today. The food was very tasty, well prepared and there was a diverse selection. The honey nut rolls are amazing, fresh croissants covered in a honey icing and sugared pecans, I ate 3!!! The service was the best I've had in a long time. My husband even commented... More

One star was as low as I could put. Son in-law hamburger was raw. Nothing on the menu says try me. Very disappointing. It was too dark inside. I want to say something nice. The server was friendly. Price for dinner was high.

The only reason l gave a two star is because of the service was terrible!!!! Then the restrooms was nasty. Never again will l chose this restaurant.
