We went here because the one in North Dakota, this one was dirty, worn out, and just bad. Our service was slow and bad, my order was screwed up and we saw no help on the bill. Pass on this place and eat elsewhere.

Good service and food was good. Like all hooters it's pricey for a wing place. However, guess paying for scenery as well.

it was very clean and the service was excellent. Our fries were cold but I have never had hot fries from any Hooters location. Our other food was excellent and drinks were good as well. I would go back again I love Hooters.

It wasn't as fun as most Hooters and was just a weird layout. All the food was the same as the rest but the options aren't all that great. Especially for a vegetarian! I know I know, I'm at a wing place, but still, there should be something for me to eat!

Food is great, service is quick and there are a lot of TVs for sports. They are always kid and family friendly and their lunch specials are a great deal! Highly recommend the boneless chicken with three-mile island sauce! Love this place!

I sat at the bar area and was able to see the floor of the kitchen and it almost turned my stomach. It was near closing on a Sunday evening and I was tired and hungry after a long journey and didn't have much of a choice at the late hour. I won't choose this restaurant again.

We stopped in for a light snack of boneless chicken wings. They were quite good. I recommend the spicy garlic sauce and my husband recommends the teriyaki sauce. Service was a bit slow, but it's because they were quite busy with a full parking lot. All of the waitresses we encountered were friendly.

Somewhat rude servers, the wings were good, and the cold beer palletable, yet pricey. And the kitchen area was dirty.

Hooters is always a winner if you want buffalo shrimp or wings. They out beat any other wing places and have amazing buffalo shrimp. This location is near a hotel, waterpark, and mall so its perfect for people traveling in the area.
