“Used to be good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

We used to go here every Friday night and sit at the bar. They have new bartenders who are terrible. The service is very slow. We went this past Friday and again the service was terrible. The food changed now as well. Not sure we will go back

“Good food at a decent price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Visited with son's family. I had the pan roasted pork chop and was pleasantly surprised by the size and the quality. Was very good. Son and wife shared the Mama's Trio and had enough for both. Grandson had the lobster ravioli and pronounced it very good. Wife and I split the homemade chocolate cake and it was very good. Service was fast and efficient. It's a typical Romano's nothing special but, then again, gives good food at a reasonable price.

“Impressed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

We were traveling through the area and stopped for lunch. I wasnt expecting much from a chain restaurant, but was wrong! Very clean. Excellent service, atmosphere and food. The owner was visiting tables. The pecan encrusted chicken salad I had was delicious and oh so big. Wifey had a chicken in skewers meal. Hers came with veggies. When the waitress saw her taking the red onions off her plate. (They were fine she just doesnt like onions) she asked her if she would like some roasted potatoes instead. She brings out a plate of delicious potatoes, no charge. Prices were reasonable too.

“pleasantly surprised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

After reading some reviews we were concerned about our dining choice but our concern quickly changed to happiness. Service was fast. Our waiter, Gerado, was there when we wanted him and gone when we wanted to talk. He had personality. The food was great. I had the pork chop. We left a big tip.
