We ate here Monday after the Masters. The restaurant was not busy so we thought we would try it not having been there before. We ordered nachos and a California Dreaming salad, a pulled pork sandwich and a chicken sandwich. Nachos were good but the amount of meat and cheese was marginal.The chicken sandwich was dry and way overcooked. They... More

A good variety and the servers are fast and helpful. The restaurant was clean with easy parking. The only problem was seating. Why is it that when a hostess sees an older couple come in, and walking with a limp, they carry you are far back as they can?

We tried this restuarant during our vacation. It kind of reminds me of Cheddars restaurants with the honey glazed croissants. The portions are plentiful. My children enjoyed the wings and the ice cream with their meals. I ordered the club sandwhich which was packed with meat. My husband had the ribs which were average.

They brought out this huge chicken breast wth the cheese and bacon on top with the lettuce and tomato on the side along with... More

I am not usually a big salad eater when eating out at restaurants. But this salad is one that you just can not miss when eating here. The salad comes with a house Honey mustard hot bacon dressing that just makes it a real treat.

The salad with grilled chicken was delicious!! The baked potato soup was pretty good. Nice atmosphere. However, I was charged $6 to add grilled chicken to a half size salad. The waiter didn't warn me and its my fault for not asking. But I thought that was a bit much.

Went here with a party of four for the first time last month. Service was excellent; our waitress was knowledgeable and attentive. Prime Rib was cooked perfectly and tender, not to mention a huge portion. All others in our party were very pleased with their entrees as well. Desserts were also well received by all. Pleasant atmosphere is the icing... More
