Then we sat down at a table and ordered dinner. While the food was good, the wait was way too long. It looked like the forgot about our... More

The service was terrible. Drink orders mixed up, took 40 minutes to get our food. Food was mixed up and half of it didn't arrive with the rest. Drinks were not refilled. Our bill was messed up, charged for drinks we didn't get. It was total chaos. I don't know if the waitress was new or what was going on.... More

My coworkers and I went for lunch. The buffet was excellent, it also came with soup or salad. The pizza was awesome! I will go back!

Greeted promptly, drink order taken and menus given. So much to choose from! We just ordered appetizers and drinks, but... More

I came here for dinner as they advertise having a large number of beers on tap. The service when I arrived was good but this seemed to decline as the evening wore on. I arrived for a late dinner around 9pm and the dinning area was not very busy. I ordered a local cream ale (this was mislabeled in the... More

Great pizza, but the service has been terrible every time I've been in the place. Last night, I waited an hour for a to go order, and part of the meal had to be re-made because a hostess shoved her face in my food after saying, "Ewwww, what is that?" She was referring to the pretzels. One of the managers... More

Oversized chain restaurant with an oversized menu. We were there late evening after traveling all day on interstate. Pretty typical chainliken it to Buffalo Wild Wings for most part more oriented to pizza joint food.
