Typical bad service, unprofessional, and under-trained bar staff. I sat at the bar and waited 30 minutes without the bartender acknowledging my presence. So, I then decided to get a table instead. Sat down at the table, and received service in a decent amount if time. But, it's extremely rare to receive great service in these areas.

This is not a good place for kids and family. It is constantly packed with people no matter what time you go. People are standing literally All over the place. Literally people are standing at your table over your food because it so crowded. Its more like a club seen than a restaurant. I would never take my Family to... More

My girlfriend and I went here to celebrate my birthday. I ordered grill chicken with roasted potatoes. The food had no taste. I tried to make the best of the situation since my friend was paying. Next my girlfriend ordered a coke. When the waitress returned with her coke, it had a plastic take out lid stuck inside the glass.... More

We had 2 Caesar salads very crisp. with plenty of dressing, croutons & cheese. The Cedar plank Chicken was very good, lots of sliced chicken breast, tender... More

Forestville location is terrible. I stopped pass that location on June 27 because I was staving and had to get a bit to eat. I was already a little nerve because a shooting had occurred at that location a year ago. Anyway, I waited for ten minutes to order a hot cup of tea and a entrée and the place... More

The server was ok, but we had to wait for a long time to receive the food. When the food came the chicken was dry and hard, and had way too much salt. The drinks tasted like flavored water. We did not receive plates for our appetizers, so we had to be creative with our dipping.

We went for a late lunch on Sunday after church. I decided to have the special on the back of the menu: French Onion Soup and a Chicken Caesar Salad. The waitress, Tanishia, told me the special was only available during the week. She did not offer to take my order for the two items separately, which is what I... More
