Pretty Good Food, But. ..

The food was good, tasted like cooked from scratch. And the portions were large. The service was pretty good too. Nice looking salad bar, although I didn't try it. The staff seemed a bit disorganized, but some of them were helping one another. The others seemed to be running around working on... read more

Stopped in for a late breakfast. Ordered oatmeal and a scrambled egg. Partner ordered waffle combo. Oatmeal came and it was straight out of the instant pouch with a small amount of hot water mixed in. When I order oatmeal at a restaurant, I expect to receive real cooked oatmeal. I could get the instant crap made better on a... More

We stopped for a quick lunch and were very surprised with the quality and amount of food served. Everything was clean and the service was excellent. My wife had the deep fried cod and it was outstanding. For me it was the homemade beef soup. Enjoyed the visit and I would stop there again.

I went there because my parents in law were there a few years ago and recommended it as steak place. I ordered ceasar salad...omg that was freaking awful. Depsite the fact it had eggs in it (chicken ceasar with eggs, really?) the salad was not fresh at all and it looked like it was the last day for romaine lettuce... More

Ate here based on other tripadvisor reviews and in walking distance from our hotel. They have a good senior selection at a good price. Got turkey and stuffing along with mashed potatoes and gravy. It was real, not processed, turkey and was very good.

We have stopped here before and the food and service has always been very good. I had the patti melt and tater tots both very good. My wife had a cheese burger and a bowl of clam chowder and both were great. They have a full breakfast bar and at noon they change over to a full salad bar. The... More

After a very long day's drive, we stopped to spend the night next door at the Foothills Best western. After checking in we walked to AJ's. I had prime rib and and he had taco salad. We both agreed the meal was very good. Our waiter was very polite and made sure all was good. The manager even checked to... More

I have eaten at this restaurant a couple of times before today (5-30-2015) and the food and service was good, but today the service was terrible. I was shown to my booth next to a couple that were eating and was told that someone would be right there to get my order, to make a long story short I wait... More
