Amazing

Despite the initial mix up with our call ahead seating, everything was amazing. The service was top notch and the food was superb!

I go to this location from time to time. I don't dive reviews comparing one restaurant to another, i look at the restaurants atmosphere, their menu, and the food and the vibe and staff. Their staff is very friendly and attentive, food choices are great for this type of restaurant which is casual dining and foods are cooked the way... More

You can always count on a great meal with great service. Consistency is the key with this restaurant as with all the restaurants in this corporate chain - Great American Restaurants. Good American fare for the whole family.

Their service is always exceptional and their food delicious! They have a call ahead system that you should utilize because great restaurants like this gather a crowd. If you call 20-30 minutes before your arrival you won't have to wait too long.

Good basic menu as in all Great American Restaurants. Never had a bad meal here. Service is prompt and friendly. Loud noise is a negative.

One of my favorites! The quality is excellent and very reasonable. My favorites on the lunch menu are Beef Tips and the salads. Service is great.

Five of us recently ate at this restaurant in Fairfax, Virginia. It was a Sunday evening and I had called ahead for a reservation. Although it was a Sunday around 5:30pm, the restaurant was busy, however, we were seated after only a very short wait. We ordered adult beverages while we looked over the menu. Sunny was our waitress and... More

Being in this popular gov ctr inside close proximity of everything that is Fairfax, means there are always long lines and long waits. Our visit marked our 3rd time. I give all restaurants the benefit of the doubt, but this was their 3rd strike out. I will not entertain a business client or family member there for dinner again. We've... More

Everything on the menu is good and service is excellent. They don't take reservations but they do have a call ahead and I strongly suggest it for the weekends!
