Disappointed this time.

My friend and I came on a Sunday for lunch. The restaurant was completely filled! It was very busy! There were no more inside seats, so they opened the tables outside. The service was really very good & friendly. I was just disappointed this time. Nothing on the plate was very hot. The toast... read more

We stopped at Chow for a late lunch with our toddler granddaughter and had a Cobb salad and a tuna melt. Everything was fresh and delicious and there was plenty to share with the little one. Service was excellent. The dining room is airy and spacious or you can sit outside.

Went with wife, daughter and a friend. We sat outside on a warm night. Service and food were very good. I had the Fish Tacos, pretty good. Wife who is 100% Italian, had the Meat Lasagna. Said it was best she has ever had.

We ate here with our family in July. The food was excellent, as was the service. It can get a bit noisy inside...I think it's a problem with their acoustics. But we sat outside and had a wonderful evening.

As I was in town visiting family, we ate there last night. They have been there before. I ordered the special which was fish with mashed potatoes and fresh spinach. My cousins had a sandwich and a Thai dish. My fish was so good that I mopped up every drop with my bread. My cousins loved their food. We finished... More

My wife and I decided to try this place last night for dinner. Initially I was completely unimpressed with our greeter, I was unsure if he actually worked there. All of the wait staff were dressed as if they were going to a keg party at a frat house, with one exception, a waitress had on a nice summer dress.... More

The food here absolutely sucks for what it is. They are catering to high end envirtotards and Libtards and not doing a very good job at it. $18 for a crappy little Hamburger??? Really??? Should have left the place as a Blockbuster Video as it was prior to becoming Chows. Save your money - many better places in Danville!
