“Love the food, but not the noise”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

Love the food, but not the noise! Caters to the young more because of the noise. The service is just OK. Because the servers seem to be stretched to thin. Takes a long time to get drinks.

“Can't recommend it”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

I can't think of a single reason anyone would want to eat here, but it's always crowded. Food is mediocre at best and the noise level precludes any conversation. Service is so slow there's no way to get in and out in a lunch hour. I've given it 3 chances -- and they're permanently on my "don't go there" list.

“A good choice for either lunch or dinner..”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

We were visitng friends in the area and had dinner at this place. The food was very good and the service very good as well. The location, even in a shopping mall was easy to get to and the staff friendly. The service was a little slow but it allowed time for chatting over dinner and a drink. A good restaurant to go to for lunch or dinner.

“Always good every time!”

Love the beer selection, and foods, especially small light plates, are a very good value.

“Lighter side is a lie”
Reviewed July 15, 2012 via mobile

I try to eat healthy especially when eating American Fare and I went to this restaurant because honey says it has the best French Dip he has ever had. I ordered the Lighter Side Fijita plate which comes with some mini soft taco's, Black Beans and the picture shows 3-5 tortilla chips and some Pico Salsa. The plate arrived with no Black Beans and half the plate was Tortilla chips! My low calorie low fat plate went from under 500 Calories to a unhealthy 1000 calorie lunch!! I had to ask for black beans and they were not "just Black Beans" but Had some added ham and was more like a soup. To the untrained weight watcher they would have been very happy with this plate thinking that they had finally found a low fat and calorie plate that was filling and tasted like a high calorie meal.. Don't be fooled, there was nothing healthy on this plate except the Pico.
