"Average" pretty much sums it up

Very nice waitress but incredibly slow service.... staffing issue? Silverware not clean... entire restaurant looked in need of a good cleaning. Meals: The BLT and cheeseburgers were ok but nothing special for sure. Fries were good.

The food was show coming out and so NOT a good experience. Cheeseburger sliders were like hockey pucks, and that was the best thing we got. The new menu is NOT an improvement, and the service was just a disappointment.

Have gone here for years. Have always gotten good service and good food. I know that good decent people are employed here and am always happy with my visits. Please give it a try.

Stopped for lunch with my daughter. Try to give the benefit of the doubt but this was unacceptable from the beginning. One waitress for an entire half of the restaurant. My daughter and I ordered the same thing, loaded baked potato soup and half a turkey club. Soup came out....cold. Not even remotely warm. About 20 minutes later sandwich came... More

This franchise never fails to satisfy, the selection,preparation,and price are always reasonable, this one was no exception. The cleanliness in this one was not up to there usual standard, but all in all it was very good.

Stopped in for lunch before going to Bass Pro. Had to wait 20 minutes for a table, even though there were plenty of empty tables everywhere. I asked the host if we could sit in a booth near the back (the whole section was open) and he said 'there's 5 in your party. You need a table'. I explained that... More

Chili's has always been one of my more favorite establishments, so it's with great disappoint that I write this. We ordered hot tea for drinks, which was literally a cup of lukewarm sink water and a tiny teabag. This grand concoction cost a total of $2.49 each, no refills included. Our appetizers took over 25 minutes to arrive, and the... More

My wife and I like Chilis Restaurants, but if this was the first one I ever visited, I would never eat at another one in the future. We may try it again here in Destin but not for some time. It took too long for our order. The restaurant was not full but there was a long wait at the... More

Not busy, went in and sat down. Not acknowledged, took 10 minutes to get drink order, then server disappeared for another 10 minutes, finally walked out. Horrible service. Other employees standing around. It was on April 16 at 8:00 PM when we went in.
