“Very Good Food with some healthy alternatives”
Reviewed 6 February 2013

We were wandering BobCat Village and noticed this place & decided to give it a try. I had the meatball marinera (on a nice crusty bread) & Martha had the chicken salad - wrap. I was happy with mine we also had the shoestring sweet potato fries & they were a nice touch. There was more than enough food and it's a place that offers healthy alternatives. Salads & wheat wraps etc..... The coleslaw was tasty & the melon slice was sweet and jucy

“Warm, friendly great experience”
Reviewed 30 December 2012

Went with friends on a Friday night! Greeted friendly as we entered and seated promptly. Server was attentive and at our table immediately! We were offered drinks right away and after receiving our wine we enjoyed conversation with our friends as we were actually able to talk to one another ( rare in some places as it can be loud). We ordered all different meals and thouroughly enjoyed each one! Very nice experience that night and will definetley go back real soon!

“awful!”
Reviewed 19 December 2012

We gathered a party of 22 people for a birthday party last Firday and we had the worst experience ever!
Our chicken wings were served raw so we sent them back only to have the server bring them back to use saying that they were cooked...we were not happy about it and that is when it all went down hill!
The server totally ignored us after that and was rude and unprofessional.
She took a friend's ordered and did not put it in, never checked on why that person was not eating or anything!
It was brought up to the owner's attention...She did ABSOLUTELY nothing about except being rude and extremely unprofessional about the whole incident...
Oh and server us basically accused us of being liars, AWESOME...
Needless to say we used to love going there but we will never go back...all neither will any of our 22 friends.

“Uninspired”
Reviewed 7 November 2012

We went there on Rib Night at 6:30. The ribs were falling off the bone, dry and very dull. It was like they had no rub, no smoke and oven baked. The only taste was from the sauce that smothered the ribs. The ladies had Chicken Marsala that had very little Marsala taste at all. We won't be running back any time soon. The bill came to over $80 for four. Pricey for bland food.
