Mixed feelings about this place

I have mixed feelings about this place because we love the set-up they have to entertain children: a playground within their enclosed courtyard. But I always leave upset with the service. This last time we came I ordered an extra side of scrambled eggs with my steak. Even though the food came out... read more

This was the 2nd time visiting this place. Wings were ok, but I'm still missing having ranch or blue cheese sauce as a side and not as an option.

Food was good they take forever to bring your order and one thing it bother my kids, was the non smoking section was still so close to the smoker that was gross to smell it. Otherwise the quality of the food was average

I cannot recommend this place, AT ALL. Regrettably it was a nightmare. My girlfriend and I have been waiting the only plate we ordered for more than 45 minutes. One of our friends asked for a salade, since she's vegetarian, and they didn't even bring her the plate. It was unbelievable. They didn't even make us a discount after we... More

The actual place is ok with a place for kids to play but I really did not like the food. I tried a sandwich and it was horrible. Even worse is delivery, although convinient the food arrives cold and soggy everytime and I live 5 minutes from the place.

After hearing raves about this place from locals, we tried it one day for lunch. The building itself is nice, and the interior quite roomy and comfortable, while service is top notch. That is where the superlatives end, as this is a local version of TGIFriday's or Ruby Tuesday's, with loaded potato skins and Jack Daniels entrees to boot. The... More

Not the greatest but not the worst. Not memorable but super inexpensive and service was excellent. Children are certainly welcome and they run around like they own this place - nice to see.

good for Sunday lunches with the family, also very good for kids! You have to be very detailed on your order as the service isn't the best!
