S'okay

Good location, good parking. Not usually a big wait for a table. The employees look a bit unkempt, but fast and friendly. The food is always good, but they're not great with wiping off tables soon after patrons leave, or cleaning the floor.

I opened this location in 2005 and worked there till 2008! This place is not what it use to be and it is very sad. The service was very slow and the food was OK to eat and that's about it! I hate to see what has happen to the place as there are not many sit down restaurants in... More

Been years since I've been back. Heard there was a new menu. Not good. Just not going to waste a my time on this one. The salad was good. That's it. I'll never be back to a Tuesday's again. Way too much money for terrible service and subpar food. I'd rather have gone to Steak and Shake next door.

We were in the mood for a salad, so visited this restaurant. Used to be our favorite, but sadly they began messing with the menu, redecorating their restaurants and it all went downhill. We had a great waitress and the food was good.

I absolutely HATE leaving one-star reviews. I refuse to unless the situation absolutely calls for it; unfortunately, this restaurant absolutely calls for an honest, one-star review. The service was simply atrocious and at a fast-food restaurant level. I do not believe there was any interaction with our waitress that was not accompanied with either an eye-roll or an exasperated sigh.... More

Bartenders were inattentive and uninterested. Couldn't get dinner ordered until we flagged down a manager. Food was mediocre and the salad had set for much too long. Very disappointed. It's convenient but not worth the time.

We went in about 8pm and were seated right away. The garden bar was very good with dozens of fresh items and several dressings. The chicken breast with Swiss cheese and mushrooms was very tasty. Grilled zucchini was scrumptious. We'll be back.

This is a wonderful place with some very nice dishes and they also have a wonderful salad bar. I sit at the bar quite often as I am usually there alone and find the service there to be Awesome . The mgmt.and staff are all very polite and make a person feel at home.

Just finished dinner here. Management asked how things were, and we let them know the Bella Sirloin Steak was disappointing. They insisted they replace it, and they did. The flavor and quality of the 2nd Steak was a night & day difference... Really exceptional! Well appointed salad bar as well. I do recommend this establishment, especially for the way they... More

We have gone to this restaurant in the past and the food is always good. They routinely add new menu items. I ordered two new menu items and they were very good--bite size shrimp and grilled zucchini. The waitress was very friendly, and since we had kids with us, anticipated that we would need extra napkins and brought their food... More
