We love to eat here when the crowd is not too great. Usually very crowded. You get a lot of food for your dollar and the meals are very reasonable. They offer a very large selection on the menu. I could just eat a plate of their wonderful onion rings. Fish tacos are one of my favorites and the veggie... More

Good food at a reasonable price and the servers clean the tables with a spray then wipe the table then the chairs and then go get a clean rag to wipe and clean the next table. Very clean all over. Allot of food for the price you pay.

I came in for dinner, had a shrimp and chicken dish, with broccoli and black beans. The food was presented well, and tasted good. I had dessert, which was chocolate cake, with ice cream, and it was easily enough for two people, and I couldn't finish it. Service was good also.

We ate the Key West chicken and shrimp, then ordered the hot fudge cake. Everything was delicious. The cake could feed a small army!

Ate there today. Arrived during shift change around 3:30. There seemed to be a little tension at the hostess station. We asked to sit outside because of the nice day. We were the only ones out there. We didn't get much attention at all from the server. Our drinks ran out a lot. My wife and daughter shared a dessert,... More

We stopped in at 11:15 am for lunch and was able to be seated immediately. Our waitress was very nice and prompt. She brought our drinks and croissants right out to us. The croissants were warm and buttery. We placed our orders and within 10 minutes our food was on the table. I got the half rack of ribs and... More
