First impression: it's sooo cold here. But the delicious food and the outstanding service (from Hector) let us forget about that. Unfortunately we don't have a Friday's in Germany, so we enjoy it in the US. We had the Bruschetta Chicken and the Memphis Ribs......More

My visit to this restaurant 1.5 weeks ago was exceptional; the food, drinks, and service were all top-notch. However, today's visit was filled with one disappointment after another. Upon arrival, the hostess was nowhere to be found so we stood and waited. Upon being seated,...More

So disappointed after years of dining at THIS location. No one showed up to work both literally and figuratively. Shame on management for not caring about her quality of the food coming our of their kitchen. It was more like "put something, anything on the...More
