We intended to go somewhere else and remembered an ad at our hotel for this establishment and stopped in. It was just average. Service was okay other than our waitress just seemed annoyed that we were there. The salad bar was a nice touch but nothing extraordinary. Our food was good and came... read more

Went on a Wednesday night and we should not have walked in the door. There were very few cars in the parking lot and that should have tipped us off. We were seated quickly, but then we waited....once our waitresses arrived(one was in training) one of them smelled heavily of cigarette smoke. It took forever to get our drinks from... More

It used to be much better 6-7 years ago before it closed and reopened. I went in with my son and ordered the short ribs. Really small porton with an overly sweet sauce. Salad bar was picked over and not what it used to be.

The service was very slow. The people were not friendly . I asked for a drink and they gave me a dirty cup with things floating in it . This place should be checked by the department of health. Shortly after eating,my stomache started to hurt. This is a place I will not be going back to again.

We came here for dinner, we had a $10 off coupon from gift certificate purchases that was near expiration. We have been here quite a few times since the relaunch with mixed results. On our recent visit we were seated in the bar area (which I normally don't mind). There was a cold draft at our table, very uncomfortable. Our... More

Had the salad bar and grilled veal. The veal tasted like a poor quality steak - very fatty and not much meat on the bone and not worth the $20. The salad bar alone is $9.99 and is very tasty and worth having without an entree.

I have made it a habit of putting in good reviews because the original purpose of Trip Advisor was, as I was told was to be objective and upbeat. In many years, I have not seen such a poorly designed salad bar, you needed to have basketball player arms to get any salad items, there were mini-tong and real long... More

Had dinner the other night at the bar area of the restaurant. We had Brittany as our server.. Brittany is the kind of waitress that you wish every restaurant would have. She knows her menu, is fast and efficient. I love their fresh salad bar that is always tasty and refilled when something is running low. Their nachos are huge..I... More

We visited for supper while on vacation. The salad bar was very good and a nice change from the food available at the Six Flags where we had been visiting that day. My husband and son ordered steaks and enjoyed them. I had the balsamic chicken which was good. My other son ordered off the kids menu which he liked.
