The food was surprisingly tasty for "chain food". However; the service was only one notch above mediocre, the atmosphere was not the least bit appealing or interesting and they seem to thrive on the return visits of the local retirees (our hosts). I imagine they don't want to rock the boat by straying from their formula. Our server was inappropriately "friendly" & patronizing which was a real turnoff.
Overall, a safe bet for good food and for dining with locals. Just don't expect a particularly special experience.
