I don't eat meat as much as possible so I am always on the lookout for places that have very good salad. One time, I had buffalo shrimp Caesar salad and it was good too but my favorite is the Ahi Tuna salad. It is the best.

We dine at the restaurant fairly often and have always been satisfied with the quality of the meals and service at moderate prices. We ordered the Greek salad with grilled chicken and the buffalo zinger wrap and a cup of chili. The Greek salad was delicious and the portion very generous. The wrap was a little on the small side...

I thought the burger was super Dry, the waitress did not know what she was talking about and if you were not ordering large amounts like the table of 10 beside me then they could care less. I will not return.

Same old - would be great if someone could show imagination. Bun was stale on burger and fries were cool. Service was so so but bathrooms were very clean. Just always feel like you can do better.

A spacious sports bar with good burgers and fries. The staff was very good and quick. My burger was more well done than medium well but I still enjoyed every bite. We had very little wait time despite the busy sports day. Many TVs available for all your favorite sports.

Just about any beer one could want is here. The food is excellent and there is plenty of seating. Come with a crowd and have a great time. Excellent service.

Needed to grab a quick bite with a fairly large crew, CAH was very accommodating. They provided great service with great food. The burgers are always a hit and the service was way better than the typical chain stores they compete with!
