This is a great place to eat. Albeit loud, the food is great. We went on a Saturday night, not a bright place as far as lighting and pretty loud. At times, we read lips :-). The staff was very friendly and would definitely recommend this location and will certainly go back again!

I'm a local, only eaten a couple times, but food was always good, today I had the salmon filet and a baked sweet potato. Portions were very large and delicious.

I understand this is a local chain, it offers something similar, though a little bit different than your usual national chain fare. Nobody had a bad meal--and all portions were more than generous. Those who split a meal were the happiest.

PROS: Very good food, attentive staff CONS: none that I can think of DETAILS: Visiting Mammoth Caves, we came to Bowling Green to swim and get dinner. The food was excellent for the price. I had a cheese with bacon hamburger that was 2nd to none. I regret we don't have one in Silicon Valley.

Always a favorite for lunch as well as dinner. Service is always very friendly and professional. Our food is consistently excellent and arrives very quickly. The Club sandwich is outstanding, the Bluegrass special and Kona chicken are also favorites. Possibly one of the best for carry out orders as well, the food is always hot and freshly cooked.

Very personable waiter and service was quick. Very nice atmosphere and good view of outside from your table. Good menu but limited in pasta dishes.

I was disappointed with the quality of food and service when I left the restaurant. We picked this place because of reviews, so we had high hopes before we went. We walked in and there were two hostesses standing at the front. Both were rude and unwelcoming. When we were sat, a nice young lady came up to us and... More
