Our group of four went there in search of mainline food and variety. I had eaten at a Macaroni Grill in another town and enjoyed my meal. This place was loud with plenty of screaming kids. They seated us in the middle of the chaos but we moved ourselves to a quieter section. My wife and friend's wife ordered the... More

Not even as good as the Macaroni Grill at home, and it is only mediocre. Our waitress was very friendly, but it didn't make up for the overcooked pasta drowning in oil. Affordable compared to other places close by.

First of all, when we only came to this restaurant because we were traveling with a child who has food allergies to fish and we knew we could find a dinner he would eat. Otherwise, we would have hit one of the other much nicer restaurants in the area. The gal seating us was friendly nut when it came to... More

We ate breakfast here on the patio. The morning was pleasant and the venue was clean with nice outdoor plantings. The food choices were somewhat limited. The food however was tray and fresh. For breakfast I would do it again.

Went there to celebrate my nephews birthday with our family. We had a reservation for 14 people at 7:00. Arrived at 6:50 and checked in with the host, he said our table was ready when we had our whole group together. ( which is fine, I totally understand I'm a resturant manager). Walked back in with my group to the... More

A big wait for a table had us quite excited that the food might be great. It was not. Lovely bread as a free starter but the mains were average at best - chicken parmigiana with was totally tasteless, not the barest hint of chicken taste in the fillet and salmon that was barely seasoned. Good helpful quick service but... More
