My wife and I stopped after a baseball game in Dayton and were somewhat reluctant to go in when we saw the parking lots pretty much filled. We went ahead and were surprised we were seated in just a couple minutes and our server was very attentive and helpful. My wife ordered the BBQ salad, which was very large and... More

Food and the local beer on tap was excellent. I had the seared salmon (sushi grade). I asked for it very rare. My gosh, it was good. It came with a bile of sticky rice that was nice. Salmon cost $15 and was worth every penny. Waitress was friendly and the place was nice.

Eating at this restaurant is interchangeable with the many other large chain restaurants that circle the Dayton Mall. The food is just average, the service is prompt and courteous but, like all the other big chains, you'll never say, "Wow, I had a great meal."

Decided to take in a little dinner on a business trip and thought I would take a chance since this was across the street from the hotel. It was great and the food was superb. The place had plenty of TV's so I could entertain myself at dinner. All in all it was a great place.

The Spinach Queso dip is the best and the fish and chips bracket is my favorite. Melt in your mouth white fish :-)
