This is what you expect from a chain restaurant...the food is good but they change their menu and if you find something you like it might not be available the next time you go. Wait staff is knowledgeable about the food and can recommend choices. Soups and signature salad are good choices. Family... read more

Food is over priced, even with specials. Service is good, setting is nice, food is not exceptional for the pricing.

This restaurant is always busy which means great food. The service is great and the servers are friendly. The menu has so much to choose from it is hard to make a decision. Great place for a nice family dinner.

Our server was attentive, engaging, and professional...absolutely! The food was OK. We had lunch, mushroom ravioli, chicken something. Ravioli was barely warm when served, and the ravioli doughy (is that a word). Returned to the kitchen and second plate hot but still just ok. Chicken dish better, but nothing to write more about. We have been here more than once... More

I have to share a small reason why I was at this restaurant in the first place. I brought the wife of a friend to Dover to receive his body from Afghanistan because he was killed over there. Having said that, the night he was flown in, we had a ceremony and then had to find somewhere to eat and... More
