Good, moderate steakhouse kind of place. Nice steaks and burgers. Good side dishes. Service was friendly and attentive. Parking is plentiful. Close to JCPENNEY and the mall.

Visited on business trip on Valentine's Day. They were BUSY to say the least. But the quality of food and the service did not suffer. Enchiladas and the ceviche were excellent. Good night out.

I ate her weekly for a few years and never had a bad experience. Great choices on the menu and a wide variety to choose from. Service is top notch. Great place for an occasion.

Last visit I was lucky to have a chance to taste my friend's calzone. And he got misty saying how it was the best calzone he's ever had.... More

Celebrated my wife's birthday here. Beautiful restaurant with outside patio with a large fountain. My wife had the ribeye which was perfectly cooked and asparagus. I chose the Barramundi Filet. It was served with a lemon caper white wine sauce which complimented it. For an appetizer we chose the guacamole. It was very fresh and a large serving. Couldn't resist... More

Went for a quick dinner on a business trip. Staff was very friendly and attentive. There was no wait. There's a beautiful outdoor patio if you wish to eat outside. I had the chimichurri dinner it was excellent. It's a little pricer but very nice dinner if you're looking for that. Lovely ambience as well.

Visited upon my request for a birthday dinner. We sat on the patio to hear the band who are always enjoyable, if a bit loud for the space. Our server was attentive, but not intrusive. The food was nothing fancy, but I thought was really good and decently priced. The men in our group ordered the chicken fried steak, my... More

We usually visit this restaurants on special occasions such as a birthday or anniversary. It has a very nice atmosphere and a super good menu. I would not recommend this place for kids even though it is a family friendly restaurant. I highly recommend this restaurant if you're going out on a date.

Lunch time, four folks, two orders of fajita nachos and margs. All very good, but the four of us could have made it on one order of the nachos.
