Nice view of pond and ducks

We got here before 6:00 p.m and were seated right away. Food was pretty decent but was mixed reviews for our family. I had pasta that was pretty good although a little too heavy on the garlic. My husband had prime rib and he didn't like it. Even I had to admit his plate looked very unappetizing... read more

I read the other poor reviews and was a bit hesitant about going here. We were not sure what restaurant they were at because we had a great experience here at Chip's. The chip's they served were terrific, they brought us back to the homemade chips they sell at our state fair. My family had the smoked chicken quesadillas and... More

This restaurant used to be one of our favorite places. On our most recent visit, the place was half empty. One waiter was serving half the restaurant. Food was OK, but the bathrooms are absolutely filthy and that makes me suspect about the cleanliness of the kitchen. The grout is dirty; there is mildew stained caulking around the urinal; the...

This restaurant was located 1 block from our Homewood suites hotel so we tried it for lunch one day. They have freshly cut potato chips served prior to the meal, which are very very good. Our group of 9 people were all satisfied with our selections but their chicken is probably the best item, ordered as rotisserie or as a... More

We sat down right away and at some great food from a fairly broad selection and it was tasty. Pizza was exceptional...most would order that next go around...it was out of ordinary good.

This is a go-to for my husband and I, we love the homemade chips that are brought immediately to your table. Good luck saying no to seconds. The pizzas are absolutely amazing and the service is stand out. Highly recommend!

Chips used to be better, but the new owners have made a few changes to the menu and I don't think it has improved anything. The food is above average, but the selection and imagination is lacking. Service is great, particularly at lunch. Almost always very fast with plenty of refills. I recommend the cobb salad, the quesadilla and soup... More

Wonderful for families. Stick with their pizza, homemade chips (free) and get a dip to go with it all. Rotisserie chicken is also good. Check into their daily specials and happy hours!

The menu is a bit high priced for lunch, but the food and service is worth it. The service was quick.
