It is a great place to eat on a Wednesday... More

This restaurant is a neat place to maybe go at least once but I wouldn't bother to go back.They have a small menu that's way over priced for what they offer and the food wasn't anything special.

Great appetizers- I choose... More

Very nice and welcoming atmosphere; food was good with daily specials listed on a chalkboard outside. Service was spot on. The whole Factory vibe was very nice.

From the first time and every time we have dined here is has been out of this world crazy good! Never a bad meal, well maybe one time when they gave my wife risotto for the vegetarian special. Other than that we love this place.
