During restaurant week, took my family out for my husband's birthday. Very disappointed. I've been a long time fan now I probably won't go back. Service was good though they overlooked me for a few minutes while waiting to be seated. Had reservations. Food was mediocre at best and was served to us cold. My family of 8 were all... More

Took the frontrunner to Ogden on Saturday during restaurant week just for the outing. My sister had a 2 course (looked 3 to me with the side) restaurant week selection that she enjoyed.

Out exploring Ogden during restaurant week with business associates. Fast seating, Kennedy was an excellent server, everyone remarked on how good the individual selections were and the three course for $15 was hard to beat. The Italian Wedding soup was great, the lasagna hearty and the banana brownie would be worth a road trip all by itself.
