Free dinner ( up to $13 off ) on your birthday. My husband enjoyed the ribs and I had the fried chicken salad. Our friends split a large burrito and ordered the beach bread. Our waitress was excellent. We sat there for 2 hours as we hadn't seen our friends in quite a while and she was very pleasant and... More

Had a really good dinner with my business companions here a few months ago. We'll be traveling back in a few weeks and will go again. Good steaks.

This restaurant looked good and had good reviews so we thought we would try it. We were less than impressed with the service we had. Our waitress forgot the salad until after our meals and she never came back for drinks. The jack Daniels chicken had great flavor but the portions were horrible for the price. It consisted of two...

My wife and I visited here because it had a fairly high rating and a local person mentioned it. I was not impressed. It is a bar that happens to have a restaurant. It is a loud environment. We tried to watch the olympics but there were no TVs we could see from our table. As for the food, bland... More

Hobo's is a fine pub featuring the typical pub burgers (a big variety) and a few other dishes. I had their version of Shepherds Pie, which had corn as an ingredient in addition to the usual ground beef and mashed potatoes. It's a tasty dish. Best of all, Hobo's had Guinness stout on draft at the same price as the... More

We went for a birthday dinner for my husband. He got a new york strip and I got the perch. Both dinners were very good. Jessica was our server and she was very friendly and timely. We didn't have to ask for refills on our drinks. The food was very hot and the order accurate. The restaurant has an extensive... More

We were very happy with the food and service here. I had a BBQ chicken salad which was great and everyone else had awesome food too. Next time I will try the pork nachos that my daughter had. They were cheesy and yummy!

Made the mistake of trying to get a table on a Friday night at 7:00PM after golf w/Friends. It was cold and misty, and hostess offered us immediate seating if we ate outside. We were famished, so off we went. Our server was burned out from a long day, but she soldiered thru. The food came out amazingly quick and... More
