The consistency is why we go to chains and this one won't disappoint. The crowds can get heavy during peak hours so you may want to take advantage of the call ahead seating..

We went to enjoy the latest promotion. Purchase a spaghetti meal and take home a Spaghetti and Meatballs free. When asked about the special the waiter stated that they had just met with the manager and we had to order a Spaghetti and Meatballs in order to get a free Spaghetti and Meatballs. So I called up my smartphone and... More

Went for a early dinner on a weekday. The place was pretty empty when we walked in but filled up quick. Food was very good and on par for the chain. Service was excellent and the waitress was very attentive. I would absolutely recommend this location.

My only complaint is that you can never get in there under an hour on a Friday night! Each time we show up, there's too long of a wait! That says much about a good place to eat! I've never had a bad meal!

The lunch menu is limited so it is best to go for dinner unless you are willing to settle for just lunch. Dinner is good and always arrive hot and steaming and any problems can be quckly resoled by asking for a manager, but it rarely comes to that.

I usually try to avoid chain restaurants & seek out local, independent ones, but this was the place of choice prior to a quiz night at my brother & sister-in-law's local pub. While the food was perfectly acceptable, it obviously didn't make an impression on me as 2 weeks later I can't remember what I had! I do remember the... More

Wow after getting food 20 minutes late, having to park and walk and having to wade through a crowd of @40 people (just at takeout) to get to food; I still gave 5 stars. This restaurant was crushed but I received my order with 0 errors, prepared exactly as expected and good as always. Thank you for a great experience... More

Went to first nice dinner in a while with daughter and wife. Called ahead and got seated right away at 530 on a Friday. Room was crowded and a bit "close". Service was fine. Wife had shrimp wrapped in prosciuotto (?sp) over a small pasta and daughter had lobster ravioli. Both were good. I ordered veal chop and asparagus, side... More

Had the sirloin steak and I'm glad I ordered the 6 oz medium rare because it was so tough it was difficult to cut with a steak knife. Loaded with gristle and fat, garlic mashed were barely acceptable. The chicken soup was good and so was the service provided by our server. I remember when Carrabba's opened years back and... More
