Went here for dinner while on vacation before heading over to the local IMAX. Great food, good drinks and a friendly staff. If you’re in the area and looking for a good meal at a decent price I highly recommend giving this place a try.

My husband and I came here for a last minute dinner and it was amazing! I had had a bad day and Olivia changed everything around for me. She was pleasant, friendly, and a great server! We each got a drink, my husband got the...Caesar salad to start and I got the signature salad, both were amazing! He got the combo chicken and brisket (the brisket was out of this world) and I got the Mary's Lamb (braised lamb shank). Lamb is one of my favorite foods and this may have been the best lamb I have ever eaten. We will definitely be back next time we are in town! They also seem to be able to accommodate large parties so we will most likely bring the whole crew. Loved it soooo much!!More

Went with friends who recommended it. The food was fantastic. The service matched the food. If you want to go somewhere which is not a chain this is the place for you. Well done ovation.

The smoked wigs were awful, we have had them on a previous visit and they the wonderful, but the ones we had were dry and over cooked, just awful. The chicken we had was dry and had chewy edges, served with a very bare minimum...of fries, not a good portion at all. Garlic mashed potatoes, looked like a lump of cookie dough on your plate, the only thing that was good was the wedge salad. We waited for drinks for 15 minutes, when the food came we had no silverware, we asked for some and after 5 minutes the hubby got up to get some for all our party. We used to visit often, but won’t be going back, this place has gone downhill major time. Don’t waste your money go eat somewhere else.More

Fabulous food with a great server Justin originally from the UK, so we chatted about home. We went twice during our holidays, and both times had great food including combos, fish and burgers. Definitely recommend.

This is a no frills restaurant, but the food and service more than make up for that. Our waitress Ariana was superb with great customer care skills. The manager Mike visited every table personally to ensure everything was ok. Can thooughly recommend.

Over 45 min. wait outside in the heat for a table. Another 15 min. to get waited on. Crowded and dirty....Order was wrong, food was cold. Owner came to our table and was uncaring and very rude. AVOID THIS DUMP.....NOT RECOMMENDED!!

Any service dog is welcome is any part of the restaurant. I think pets are only allowed in the outside eating area . . . But I'm not sure.
