The choices are really great here and I really liked how we could create our own appetizer platter, pleasing everyone. They have tablets at the tables to play games. Very tasty French onion soup, wedge salad just OK. My husband had the Shrimp Thai salad for the third time. It must be amazing if you like Asian flavors. Sad to... More

We ordered car side to go food online. The order was ready promptly and brought to our car. When we got the food home, we realized we did not have the fries with one of the meals. Additionally, I ordered a medium steak and while the flavor was good, the steak was well done. Some of the food was barely... More

We went in midday on a Sunday so it was pretty empty. We sat there for about 15 minutes before we walked out. Not one person even acknowledged we were there other than the hostess when she sat us. There was a group of servers sitting and standing around in groups, one server actually working in her section kept looking... More

Stopped for lunch. My wife had spicy wonton chicken tacos and she loved them. I had the Franwitch. Best Philly cheese steak sandwich I have had since I was in Philly. Fried green beans were very good. Service was ok. New waitress, but you have to start some where. Manager came and paid a visit and seemed very pleasant.

I'll preface this with the info that the manager dropped the tab about 75%,but having said that, this entire visit should have been comped. It took 21 minutes until the waiter showed up. Drinks took another 20 minutes and were both horrible and wrong. Margarita without salt, strawberry daiquiri with salt instead of sugar. My steak wasn't cooked, it was... More

This is one of my wife's go-to places when we can't decide where to eat. I can take it or leave it. The appetizer sampler is my son's favorite (consists of boneless wings, celery sticks, fried mozzarella sticks, chips and spinach/artichoke dip, cheese quesadillas). My wife likes the oriental chicken salad. I've had (at various times) the fiesta lime chicken,... More
