“Great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We enjoy meeting friends to watch the football games on Saturday's. Kids eat free, so it's a great deal for families.

“Fun place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

It had been a while since my last visit to this restaurant, and I was really impressed by the improvements in both the menu and set-up. Everything was excellent and reasonably priced. Looking forward to returning.

“Worth The Visit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Catch the lunch specials if you can. They are always fairly priced and the portions are there. I prefer sitting at the bar but the table selections are generous. I have seen other comments that suggest some of the waitresses are "distant" or act like they don't want to be there. Well; you get that at a Chili's or at Texas Roadhouse or anywhere you eat at. What's new? Every employee that I talk to is kind, smiles, looks good coming or walking away, and will go out of there way to see that your food is spot on and that your glass never goes dry. They are hard-working and good-looking. What's distant about that? If you want a treat then go to the bar for the coldest beer around. And I hope you run into Jennifer, for an added treat, who smiles like a Goddess and will treat you like a King. It's Worth The Visit!

“What is not to like?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We go here about once a month in winter and at least twice a month during the summer to sit on the deck. For what you go here for, which is all about illusion, it is great. We don't eat meat so we usually end up drinking beer and eating cheese sticks or french fries. I wish they had a veggie burger at least. Anyway, the draft beer is good and it is a low stress place to spend an hour on a deck on a pretty day.

“Wings are good/Service not so great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

The wings were fine but our server could have used a burst of kindness. She acted like she didn't want to be there at all.
