Good food, even better desserts!

I like going here. That being said, it's usually a special occassion type visit only because, like many restaurants near the mall, it is a little pricey even at lunch. It is rather noisy (even at lunchtime) but they do have good food and the main reason I go here - their carrot cake! It is like... read more

The Remoulade sauce served with this $14 burger was excellent and worth the money. service was good and the decor was very nice for a lunch or casual dinner. Located in the tony Somerset mall this is a fun place to eat and shop.

Yes, this is a mid-priced, casual dining chain restaurant. But they do it as well as anybody...maybe even better. I've been going to this location since they opened (what? 10 years ago?) and I have never had a bad meal. I no longer live in Michigan so I only get here once a year so, but I'm impressed by their...
