“Satisfied”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014 via mobile

Happy hour is great. Drinks strong. Happy hour menu large & versatile . Nicely presented & adequate portions. Fried chicken sliders, fried zucchini are favorites. Only complaint is terribly noisy. Have to yell to have a conversation .

“Mediocre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Been there a few times- happy hour, Dinner. Food it just mediocre, as can be expected of any chain restaurant. Ambience is okay and service is okay as well. Nothing special, except the expensive price as another review here mentioned. There are better places to explore in the area.

“Always Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Even though this place is very predicable, the food, service, and atmosphere are always good. The skinnylicious salads are my favorite. The bread is good too. Although i do my best to stay away from it.

“Ugh”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Why bother.
There are many chain restaurants around but this has a unique extra- it's expensive. When you enter, you are greeted by a person, usually a teenager, who has no idea of hospitality. There is a wait and sometimes a pager, like calling fools.
The food is all large potions of over salted and very handled stuff. Salads are not of the healthy farm grown vegetables but instead, the mass market fodder. Dressings are all from a big commissary and not too tasty.
The entrees didn't interest me but were large. Very big drinks and lots of refills.
All in all, if you are looking for big portions of uninteresting food at high prices ,then this is the place for you- it would seem to be a contradiction of the California experience.
By the way, the cheesecake was about $8 for a slice.
