“Bang Bang Chicken”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

We had to wait a good half hour before sitting down, but with a menu item called Bang Bang Chicken, we couldn't resist. Our party of four greatly enjoyed our dinner. I could only finish half of my meal, but the others insisted on trying the red velvet cheesecake and the peanut butter cheesecake. God forbid I suggest the low-carb choices on the menu! : - )

“Come hungry!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

Probably the best and largest turkey burger I ever tasted. The plates are served hot which does a great job at keeping the food warm. The Ultimate Red Velvet Cheesecake was very good and Chocolate Cookie Dough Cheesecake, my daugter's favourite was also good. Our waiter was attentive and knew the extensive menu inside and out.

“Las Ol la la la la”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Chain resto on the main strip of Las Olas. We stopped in mainly because the prices were more affordable than most of what is available on the strip. Food was okay, service left little to be desired but we left with full stomachs with money to spare.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

We were on our way for a trip on the Carrie B and decided that coffee and pancakes would fit the bill. We ordered blueberry pancakes and a stack of pancakes arrived -no maple syrup, no whipped butter and not a blueberry in sight. When we pointed out that there were no blueberries the waiter told us they were definitely blueberry pancakes. When we mentioned there wasn't a berry there- he told us they powdered the blueberries and put them in the mix!!!! He then went off and left us to it. We struggled through as much as we could -no refil of coffee offered either. When the guy eventually came back we still said these weren't blueberry pancakes -he brought another waiter over obviously to shut up these awkward Brits. Other waiter took one look and said 'these are regular pancakes' and whipped them away obviously to replace them. By then we were running out of time and were full of 'regular pancakes' so spoke to a managerial type who grudgingly took off the cost of our replacement blueberry pancakes from our bill of coffee and regular pancakes- they were going to charge us!. Not a word of apology. Having read the reviews we were really disappointed with our visit

“The best cheesecake ever!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

We always make a habit of stopping in here pre or post cruise and the food never disappoints. Portion sizes are huge! My husband and I usually split an entree and then have room for a piece of cheesecake each. My only nitpic would be that the service is inconsistent. We often had to wait for refills of coffee or soda. The restaurant needed a bit of cleaning as well. Booths need reupholstering in the worst way.
