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

We had picked up very tired friends from the Logan Airport shuttle across the street, and this was the most convenient option. We waited an exceptionally long time to be acknowledged by our waitress, and it didn't get much better from there. The entrees were served by someone else who arrived with four dinners but no one had cleared the... More

Great big area with plenty of tables and a nice bar area. Plenty of people shopping at the mall go there. Good burgers, Sandwiches and Clam Chowder Bread Bowls. They make Onion Strings which are very good. Their spin on Onion Rings well worth a try. Tom O'Connor

Great menu, in that there's something for everyone. The sweet potato French fries - some of the best I've had. The chopped salad with chicken was great. The warm bread and butter was addictive. Lively crowd and quick service.

A huge restaurant in the mall. Noise level was a bit high. The food was served quickly and the staff was friendly. This was our first experience here. There absolutely was nothing wrong, we would just prefer a quieter more relaxed setting! I had the fish sandwich which was truly large and a lot of bread. My husband had a... More
