We used to love this place and went quite often, but on our last visit we ordered the half chicken barbeque and were appalled when they served it. The chicken was literally burned to a crisp (completely charred). We thought that it was a joke but the waitress actually expected us to eat it! Her response was that it was... More

I like going for trivia, the food is your average food. Nothing special, but not bad. The drink names are fun and trivia is fun so if you just want to get out with some friends, this is a good place.

First time I had their ribs (a little pricey) they were extremely meaty and absolutely fell off the bone. Definitely will go back for them again when I get the urge for ribs, best in town. My daughter always loves the wings, crispy and the type of mild sauce she likes. The staff is amazing, very welcoming and work together... More

Disgusting. Gross. We left without finishing our meals. They didn't even know what a Beefeater martini was. The worst restaurant I've been to in years! I think I may even get sick! What a disgusting excuse for a restaurant... Their food license should be revoked!!

I always get bored of the same old stuff this town has to offer... chain restaurants or Italian food. This place honestly has it all. My husband is a meat lover and their Smoked BBQ meats are perfect for him. We just tried their new smoked wings this week. Delicious! My personal favorite is the Harvest Salad. It's topped with...

I have eaten here at least three times, so its not like the food is terrible, but... The ribs are good, not great, I think it has to do with their dry smoking and their sauce. The pulled pork is dry and a little stringy. They have fish tacos on the menu, one of my favorite things to eat believe... More

Decent food, average atmosphere, great service from our server Jody. Wings were good, so were the club tacos. Would definitely try some of the smoked BBQ food next visit.

California Grill is our favorite place to eat, it's got a varied menu, something for everyone, and it's got lots of the new "in" dishes. Love the big booths by the window, plenty of room for 5 or 6 people. The service is great too.
