Poor Service, Plain Old Chain Food

The waiter was terrible and we waited a long time. Do not risk the bar, the drinks were not well mixed. The food was what you expect from this chain, but served cold. If you are looking for something familiar the soup and salad for lunch works. We ate here for lunch which was not bad, and the... read more

I always get the soup and salad. It fills me up and is very good. Don't change the recipes for your soup.

We hadn't been here in a while and were surprised by some of the changes. The waitress was terrible. She kept referring us to the electronic gadget they now have for games, ordering, paying the bill, etc. We wanted to deal with a real person. The portions are MUCH smaller than they use to be but still tasty. When we... More

We like their soups and appetizers a lot and I can have as much soup as I want. We typically sit at the bar, the main dining room is sometimes too noisy for us.

Our dinner was way below average. I ordered the fiv cheese zitti. All the noodles were not cooked and the cheese was hard and gritty instead of soft and cheesy and was tasteless. I've had a frozen "TV" dinner of the same that tasted better. My wife had a chicken broccoli and alfredo sauce dish and she said the alfredo... More

We waited about 30 minutes during the lunch hour . . . . probably typical.Plenty of parking and the food was standard. Did not care for the seating; a low wall separated our table, plus about four along the same wall, from an equal row of tables on the other side. Not very private.

When you can't afford to spend mor than $8.00 than this is your place. Making a name for itself by providing authentic Italian salad with iceberg lettuce and a heaping gallon if "Italian" dressing and all you can gorge bread sticks. Breadsticks, not sure you can ca them breadsticks, not even a hint they were baked. If you like pre... More

The restaurant is a far cry from the original that stood in Metro Center. This new building is filled with a fun, family-friendly atmosphere and looks fantastic. The staff is friendly, although not exceptional, but the food makes up for it tremendously. I recommend the chicken scampi with their special peach tea!

Cannot fault the service but the food wasn't great. Menu didn't give the vegetarian options. It was very busy so obviously very popular, perhaps we ordered the wrong dishes.
