“Disappointing and Overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

My dinner with friends here was very disappointing. I ordered the a vegetarian dish with tofu. The menu said it was steamed. The veggies were raw and the tofu was strange looking and tasteless. Other dishes that came out were below the quality of many neighboring restaurants and carry outs. Service was just OK, but when I entered, no hostess was at the front and I waited about 3 minutes before someone even greeted me. Will not return.

“PF Changs ROCKS!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Following Navy boot camp graduation on April 12, 2013, our sailor, another sailor and her family and a sailor buddy all went to PF Changes for dinner. The quality of service and quality of food will not dissapoint. The staff took great care of the entire party. Only a 20 min drive from Great Lakes Navy Base, you cannot go wrong here

“Hit or miss, avoid the specials”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Having had a good experience in February, my colleague and I decided to go again in March, only to be sorely disappointed
While the server was courteous and seemed eager to please ( he did have to serve a number of tables though), the food fell short quite dramatically.
I ordered the Thai Sambal Shrimp Noodle main course, which was photographed with appropriate garnishes such a cilantro. What was served could have well come from a can and from another continent! The sauce seemed more like a creamy tomato, the shrimp were overdone and the noodles were suspiciously like linguini!
My colleague ordered the sea bass with tropical salsa, again the fish felt overdone and the overall experience more like a Tex-Mex hodge podge
PF Changs have quite an extensive menu and offering specials may just be the last straw for the kitchen staff
