We had a free meal due to a bad experience in Venice, Chili's but the food was delicious and the waitress Heather was wonderful. Like nite and day. I would go back to this Chili's again in a heartbeat. We even wrote a great review for her on their page. Very nice and wanted to help her customers. Great waitress.... More

This is one of the loudest restaurants I have been to. Everything echoes. The food was pretty good, had the new smothered burrito. The table side guacamole tasted like a salt lick though. The waitress was horrible though. She was mad when we didn't snap out an order as fast as she wanted. Once she brought the food, we didn't... More

We arrived and what we saw was a couple of large parties leaving. The sound was very loud, but we figured it would get better, right? No so, the service was slow and when our server finally arrived we actually couldn't hear what she was saying. A screaming baby left, and a couple with 2 rowdy kids. Still no improvement.... More

What can I say, it's exactly what you would expect from a Chili's. The service, the food, the environment was all.. average.

While vacationing in Florida, we stopped by Chili's for dinner one night and ended up stopping for lunch again the next day. The food was great and the service even better. Thanks Landon!

Where to start? The restaurant is in great need of a deep cleaning and updating. The floor was sticky, windows dirty, trash on the floor that the wait staff ignored and walked around. A kitchen helper walked into the dining room and looked more like a garbage truck helper than a food service worker but the real turn off was... More

Noisy and surprisingly busy for a Sunday evening; 20-minute wait for table even call-ahead priority. Friendly and efficient service, though servers seemed rushed. Food was mediocre. Our fairly large party ordered a variety of items, and none were especially good, though none were bad either. On balance, rather disappointing, with numerous better choices in the Brandon area.

Close to hotels, great food and service. I had the pork carnitas. They were good and the portion large. Two for one drinks is always a nice touch too. The service was very good. Being a Saturday night it was very busy but the wait for a table was only 15 minutes.

My daughter and I love meeting for lunch at this Chili's. They have a nice menu with lots to choose from. I don't feel like I have to get all glammed up to eat here.We sit in the bar area and usually share a yummy chicken nacho appetizer and the we split a huge buffalo chicken salad, which I highly...
