Okay let's get real. It's Chili's it's a Bay City restaurant bar family oriented loud you know what you getting when you walk in And that's the rub. Saturday night 8 p.m. the place is 90% full.

While at a family reunion, we took off to the beach. This resulted in a late dinner. The meal definitely met our needs. The special was on target and the Mexican food was good. I would go back.

Went for lunch, which was very busy with business folks but was seated and served quickly. Great service that produced great salads from the kitchen. No static was offered over the request to split the checks … thank you.

We have loved Chilis for a long time. We usually don't like or go to a chain restaurant but Chilis always seem to be consistent and if ever there was an issue they resolve it. I love all their delicious salads and my husband is especially fond of the ribs and steaks. Love Chilis

Went with my family for a quick late lunch, at 2pm last weekend. Not very busy, and we were seated quick. Server was friendly, took our orders, gave our drinks, that was as good as it got. From there on, downhill. No drink refill attempts made, basically ignored while server attended a larger table that was drinking. Waited 45 minutes... More

Good food and reasonable prices. No surprises, but we had a good meal and enjoyed ourselves. No long waits for service either.

I know people may think that Chili's is just a run-of-the-mill chain restaurant, but the Portland, TX location is excellent. We have eaten there several times. They have a dinner for 2 for $20 with appetizer and entrée or a really good deal for $35 with cocktail, appetizer, entrée and dessert - what a deal! My husband had half rack... More

Admittedly we went on a Wednesday during the Christmas Holidays, it was busy. We waited about 40 minutes for a table. We were seated right next to the kitchen where I could see a lot that was going on. Some of the staff was hustling while a few young girls were just there to look cute and stand around. Our... More

My wife and I took our grandson out for dinner this evening, and never expected to have this problem. We were greeted and seated right away. It then took 15 minutes and me finding a supervisor to get our drinks and chips and dip. Oh, I forgot to mention, they weren't busy. After getting our drinks and and chips, he... More
