It is always a challenge to write a review of a chain or franchised restaurant. Most of the time the food in one is exactly the same as another. The only changes one can expect to find are in the service or the location. In this case I found the changes in the food too, and this made me a... More

Not bad for a chain- its a Decent steak at a decent price. Ive Never had a bad experience At this location. we have Always had a friendly server. Good cocktails.

For some reason this restaurant is very popular. We had to wait forever to be seated. The steak here isn't that good. It was okay. Would not eat here again unless I could avoid the wait.
