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

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.

Been going here for years. Like others before their closing and after the re-launch about five or so years ago. Can't do this anymore. Service is horrible. Food is not fresh and is overcooked. Not even close to an average experience. Most recently dined there on Saturday followed by a Monday. Same loud and obnoxious waitress (Renae) each time. She... More

Ate here a few weeks ago with a friend and both of us had chicken entrees which were very good and their fret nod fresh salad bar. Fair prices, good sized portions and our server was great!

I have eaten here both before it closed and after. Food is always good, service is generally very good. Steaks and ribs are my favorite; chicken dishes often very good as well. Appetizers can be really good. Love the salad bar and the breads. Lots of interesting choices.
