We decided to give this a try on a weekday. The weekends are crazy busy and there is no way we were going to wait 40 minutes for a table.. Place is very noisy and tight. You are practically sitting with the next table. Menu is varied with lots of variety. They also have a 2 for 20, for 2 for 24 dinners, where 1 appetizer from limited selection is included. Appetizers and drinks are half price during happy hour, this accounts for a extremely busy place during happy hour , but a gradually clearing after 7. We both had ribs from the 2 for 24 menu. Ribs were average good, but nothing very exciting . Portions were very small. Standard chain fare. We asked the waitress what the sides were, and she included a salad. She also failed to mention that they would up charge for a salad ?? Anyway, when the bill came and we inquired, she said, oh ..they are just a little more...$2.19 apiece ! If that is the policy, then the waitress should mention the upcharge. So be careful and be sure to ask what is covered and what is not on the 2 for entrees. Place is OK for hanging with friends for 1/2 price special, but doubt we will go back, too noisy, too crowded, Prices are too high for average food

We visit here almost on a weekly basis, the food is always very good, and we sit so we have the same waitor every visit. His name is Jim, so if you go request him. He is always so upbeat and makes you smile, if something is not perfect he will make it perfect. Soup and salad lunch specials can't be beat along with their steak for lunch. We love it here.

I like the consistency of the food. Service was good. I have eaten in many in Ohio and different states.

I was hoping that the low calorie meals would have more taste and be higher quality. They put some kind of awful pasty tasting product on the broccoli.
