“Very busy but surprisingly fast service”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

We went for dinner and we were told that there would be a 10 minute or so wait so we went to the bar for cocktails which were good for sure. We didn't even have time to finish or drinks and our beeper went off and we then seated. There were plenty of servers and we had a very little wait before our order was taken. Everything was brought to us fast, hot and tasty. A great place for family, groups or a night out with "my better half"

“Weekly Staple”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

99 is one of our favorite places to eat. They usually seat quickly, have great food, and good service. There are many great waiters/waitresses, but Dee is one of our favorites. My favorite there is the steak tips - there are also great appetizer options. We love the potato skins, boneless chicken wings, and the mozzerella sticks as well. Great selection of food with great customer service and prices that keep us coming back!

“Not what it used to be..”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

I have eaten here many times and although it is never off the charts amazing, it has always been a solid choice. They are usually pretty consistent with service and food. However, the food quality has progressively gone down hill over the last few visits. The last visit there my wifes meal was terrible. She had some of mine which was just ok and because we were in a hurry we weren't even going to say anything. The server noticed she hadn't touched it and asked if it was ok? We explained that it was pretty bad but no worries just bring the check. The manager then came over and he was pleasant but insistent upon the fact that it was "a very popular choice" and "the chicken comes from the same tray as your husbands meal". It was kind of obnoxious especially considering we didn't ask for any refund. The waitress returned with our check and they did take the meal off which was nice but the whole thing left a bad taste in our mouth (pun intended). It will no longer be on the rotation of restaurants we visit...many other choices in the area.

Monday night and the 99 is busy. I had the Country Fried Chicken and my wife had a burger. They were both excellent and the price was great $25.00 for dinner

“Better and better”
Reviewed January 30, 2014 via mobile

We had dinner and once again we were not disappointed. Dee our waitress, the third time in a row, provided excellent service. The food and prices are excellent. We'll be back
