“A good part of the Great American Restaurant Chain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

We've been to Ozzie's several times in the last couple of months. Each time our meals have been very good. We love the bread basket that is brought to the table after you've ordered. The food is consistent, although the wait could be long if you get there at noon time. Located in an area where there are several large office buildings, the place is a popular hang-out especially at lunch. Parking can be a problem, but the best parking at busy times is behind the restaurant to the east side of the theatre. They do take "call ahead" reservations as do all of the members of the GAR chain. Bottom line: good food with good service.

“One of the best in the Great American Chain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

This resturant breaks precedent for the Great American Chain in that the menu vairies considerably from its standard fare. Additionally, it is 4 stars whereas most of the others is more 3.5. The one common denominator is don't order dessert--not really quality but the prices suggest 1st rate.

“Tried Ozzie's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

We've been to all the Great American restaurants and had not yet tried Ozzie's. We enjoyed our dinner after being promptly seated in a nice atmosphere. Our server was prompt and helpful with answering questions as is the case at all the GAR establishments. My wife had the chicken marsala and enjoyed it but thought it had a little too much pepper taste. She prefers the chicken dish at Mike's. I had the lasagna which is not traditional but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I read where some were not pleased with the serving size but it was more than enough for me. I'm glad I tried it and will have it again in the future.

“Good food, good service, good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Every time I have visitors, I take them to Ozzie's for dinner. The food is delicious, and the servers are very friendly. There is always a unique twist on the dishes served at Ozzie's, and everything I've tried is fantastic.
