When I first saw this restaurant on Ritchie Highway, my first thought the owner(s) was trying to ride on the popularity of the Olive Garden. I was curious, so I dropped in for lunch. It might have been because it was a miserable day, windy and rainy but there was hardly anybody there. When I drove up, I first thought... More

We came here twice with our large softball group 15-25 people. The staff is excellent and very efficient. The food is great, fresh and hot. My daughter was so excited because the crab soup is incredible and she couldn't wait to have it again. We had shrimp tacos and a chicken pasta with basil pesto and both were fresh and... More

This is one of our favorites. We can always come to watch games and get great Italian. The service is fast and friendly. Certainly a great choice for couples, families, or just by yourself. Don't miss this place if you have the chance!

Great seafood Alfredo, fantastic fresh seafood. Salad is always fresh and crisp and the bread sticks are delicious and hot. One of my constant favorites that I van always rely on for consistency. Great bar area with tons of TVs. Don't miss this place!

My wife and I had another great meal. We both love the crab pretzel as an appetizer, though you could make it a meal in itself. The breadsticks that come with the salad are better than the ones at other restaurants. The meal was superb.

We went for dinner. Called ahead to make sure that they had endless salad and rolls for the teens. The answer was yes, and there was also no wait. I intended on going some place else and still feel I would have been better off. The food options are. Meal, rolls and salad. Dressings were very limited, as well as... More

Over priced for the quality of food served. The place had a terrible smell and the food was ok. The service was mediocre at best. I would not go back.
