It has sort of crazy decor (you may get seated in the library), but it is fun and very clean. The staff is super friendly and very helpful. Went the first time many years ago on a spouse retreat, both kids fell asleep in the car and they let me order over the phone and brought my food out to... More

We were waited on very quickly and received our drinks promptly. I tryed the ribs (very good) my wife had the steak. She said it was done right and good. Very clean inside and many tv's which was good by me. All in all I would eat there again.

Prices were ok, a little high. Employees were nice and fast. Food was great. Ribs were good. Had a good kids menu and they got ice cream with their meal. Served rolls, which were awesome. Place was clean. Bathrooms were cool and very clean. Would visit again.

The food is average and so is the price. There is a small arcade to occupy the kids while waiting on food to be served. Great service!

The family went for lunch and I was surprised by how good it was. The food was above average typical diner fare. The is an arcade to keep the kids busy while you wait. The drink list was pretty good as well.

It's a bar, but has a very large and decorated restaurant area that seemed like a good place for a family meal. We just had drinks and snacks at the bar. Decent selection of beer, though mostly just main stream stuff. Don't recall seeing a single selection from SC which was disappointing given they billed themselves as having a lot... More

We tried this place after putting it off for a long time thinking it was a tourist trap because of the location. We finally decided to give it a shot and was very impressed. We really loved the early bird prices. We got the nachos and salad and was very satisfied and even had a lot left over I took... More

Awesome. Great service, and the food is great. My wife's chicken Caesar salad is huge and my smothered chicken was delicious. Had the buffalo shrimp appetizer which was great as well. Third time here and will definitely come back.

The atmosphere here is fun. Check it out if you have a wide range in your party. Everyone seemed to enjoy their food. I got a burger that was OK, nothing special. But that was the worst of it. Everything else was good. Nice selection.

Don't waste your money here. They billboard advertise but quality of food is truly merely average at best...My wife had a Hawaiian steak that was mostly gristly, I had another that "had" to be cooked well according waitress, no other way...And burger buns was stale. Their version of a blooming onion was pathetic...Get on Yelp and look for some better... More
