This restaurant stands out from the rest. The food is excellent and unique, no matter what I've tried. Great atmosphere to sit and talk for a while. Comfy booths. Classy but not dressy.

I have visited this restaurant several times and have always enjoyed their variety of food and drinks. Outdoor patio is great even in the winter with a large fire pit to warm your bones. Drinks can be a bit pricey but are all unique and flavorful--eg., Blackberry Rita, Raspberry Mojito...etc. Appetizers are great, recommend the stuffed mushrooms--yummy. Parmesan Frites are... More

Great place with awesome pulled pork sliders...adding the fried pickle spear is greatness. Everything I've tried has been great. Great low cal goat cheese chicken salad option. Pot roast, burgers, chicken sandwiches, steak are all great. Love the small portion options for those watching their weight. For those that aren't their carrot cake dessert is rich and delicious.

Not really sure how to rate a Restaurant with Good Food, OK Service so low, but their prices are NOT commensurate to the Quality, OR, the Overall Quality & Quantity is NOT commensurate with the Cost. And it darn sure is TOO Noisy!

i have a group of friends who love this place, but I've never seen the draw. It's overpriced- they email coupon specials all the time, but I'd rather get better prices without coupons or even pay more and go someplace else! I recently found Brooklyn's in the same Firewheel Mall area and it's top notch- great salads, pizza and desserts.... More

Stopped by to cash in the free entree for my wife's birthday. We both had the tilapia and it was very tasty and well positioned. We had to remind our waiter about the discount even after providing the code from the text message they sent us. The check was dropped off before we were half way through our meal. We... More

Dinner was fantastic. I had Thai Chicken and it was delicious. Place has a formal feel to it, but don't fear if you are dressed down. The hostess forgot my silverware setup so I had to ask but did not take away from the meal.

This place has a very varied menu! If you're planning to stick with the usual healthy meal, they have extremely healthy and nutritious salads. If you want chicken tenders, they have those too. I was actually shocked when the spinach dip came as it was presented very well and tasted equally as amazing. Everything on the menu is DELISH... it's... More

Had my birthday dinner here and really enjoyed it. Service was great. We love their almond crusted talapia and as usual it was wonderful! Their stuffed mushroom appetizer was really good also. Meal was not rushed and enjoyed eating here. Would come back when in the area.
