“Hit or miss”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Had early dinner at 5:30. It was not that crowded and we waited 10 minutes for our server. He apologized because the people from the other table left after they ordered so he had to clear that out with the manager.

From then on Jon was very attentive. Got our order right, refills were done without being asked to. Though he forgot to leave napkins, which was important since we had ribs. There were some food on the floor, it would be nice if these things were cleaned up right away. At some point so many servers were just walking around but not looking at guests. So if you need something, you have to wait. When servers don't look at other guests, it's a minus for me. That is one way of avoiding serving other people. All managers should remind their staff that restaurants are a service oriented industry.

The baby back ribs was really good. I was hoping for more beef in the cheese nachos. My son was disappointed with his cup of dirt. So I would say it is a hit or a miss but we were happy enough with our server.

“Poor value, average food”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

The food was OK, the service wasn't bad, but the Ruben sandwich was a joke! It came with two thin slices of corned beef, a slice of cheese, another slice of bread, and another two thin slices of corned beef - for $10 it was WAY too little meat and WAY too much bread. I'm not sure if it had sauerkraut on it or not. After sending it back and getting a burger as a replacement, the burger was not the right one (missing ingredients), but by this time we were hungry, so we ate it. Ribs don't usually have a ton of meat on them, and these were on the lower end of the rib meat scale - they were pretty sparse.
The "special TGIF lemonade" was carbonated and tasted like a glass of sprite with a lemon squeezed into it - I probably paid a lot of money for it.

This restaurant is the best ever!!! The food is always good never have a problem with ordering! But they stopped making the best dessert ever, the Sizzling Ice Cream Nachos! The service is always old and the waiters are the nicest people.
