It's a chain, so right away I didn't expect much. On my first visit I ordered the crab-cake burger - plain boring. No flavor at all. However, on a follow-up visit, I tried other items on the menu, such as the chimichurri steak, gorgonzola flatbread, voodoo fries, and other dishes, and they were delicious.

We take our customers for lunch, we have the employee's event here. the last event we had, it became a little overwhelmed for the waitresses so the service was not that efficient.

Enjoyed a large party of 20 in a private dining area for a wedding rehearsal dinner. The staff was helpful, pleasant, and very attentive to our party. The food was "to die for :) " . Very pleasant experience and we would recommend it to anybody. Can't wait to return for a quiet "couples" dinner!

Great appetizers, entrees and desserts. Good quality food and reasonable prices. Nice bar area with high top tables for dining. I usually have grilled salmon or chicken with vegetables and a Napa salad.
