Nothing to Ride Home About

We were staying at a nearby hotel and were starving. I was dying to try a lobster roll and was excited to see this on the menu. We get there and I stupidly didn't even look at the menu for other options because I was so excited to try a lobster roll. Lo and behold, they were sold out! I... read more

I was at the South Shore plaza with my family on Sunday 4/26/15. It was 4pm so I offered to by dinner for 4 of us. My first choice was the Cheese Cake factory....but it was a 1 hour wait. I then decided to give Joe's a try.......big mistake! 1 buffalo chicken appetizer with 3 tiny chicken tenders and alot... More

We sat on the bar -- the service is always better at the bar, my friend said. This is actually true at this place. Don't let the name fool you, the food is more than your typical bar and grill. Well prepared and nicely presented, and tasty. This is a local chain, if you want to unwind and grab a... More

Came here in a Friday night, made reservations just in case it was busy. Wasn't that busy at all for a Friday night especially it being attached to a mall. Seated right away to a nice booth near the kitchen. Had a very attentive waitress, the bread was amazing as usual. Food was great. Just a great overall experience.

Good food and service. Very clean and vibrant restaurant. Large portions and good quality fresh ingredients. Good menu choices and nice selection of wines, beers and cocktails.

We had lunch here after spending hours shopping in the mall. We often meet here since some family members live north of Boston and others live in the southern region. We like coming here because we enjoy the Sunday brunch and the menu has enough variety to satisfy everyone in our group. Most importantly, the meals have always been good.... More

The food is good, but the service is always horrible. I've gone all different times of day and the result is always the same. It's badly run. The bathrooms are always in need of a cleaning---wipe down, empty trash, etc. When it's busy, it's even worse. Avoid this place.

Set in a shopping mall this is an average restaurant chain with ample dinning room seating, mediocre service and even more mediocre food at a relatively high price. If you're in Braintree you can do better the the TGIF across from the mall.

Our group was here for lunch. When trying to order drinks, three of the options we chose were "not available, sorry!" That's a bit of an annoying way to start the meal. We finally picked drinks, and then waited too long for them to get to the table. The meals - sandwiches and salads - took too long to get... More
