“Great Restaurant”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

This restaurant located in the Harbor Shops Mall right behind Embassy Suites was the perfect place for a casual meal. From the moment we walked in until we left the staff was friendly and welcoming. You order at the counter and when the meals are ready they are brought to your table. The food was really good - great chicken wings, Caesar salad with chicken, grilled salmon and fabulous burgers got rave reviews from our group. This immaculately clean restaurant with a fun décor and reasonable prices, also, serves beer and wine. We'll be back on our next visit to Fort Lauderdale.

“Excellent lunch alternative”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

This is a diner. I gave it a rating of four because of that, as I do not want to compare it with a full blown restaurant. However, as far as diners go, this one is excellent. You order your food, pay for it, then you sit and wait. The service is reasonably fast and I notice the owners work in it, always a good sign. Our hamburgers were outstanding with high quality and thick beef patties, cooked as ordered. We also had a tomato soup that was very good. I do not believe that the food is pricey considering the quality of their sandwiches, but some people may feel that way. The place is not too big, so be prepared to find it crowded on peak hours. It is located on a commercial strip center off 17th Street and parking is easy.

“Great Hamburger!”
Reviewed March 21, 2014 via mobile

I fully intended to try the Angus Club Sandwich but instead settled on a CheeseBurger. It was great, cooked perfectly and very lean ground angus. Home made fries and a side of cole slaw were excellent. We arrived about 12:30 and they were very busy but all the staffed worked quickly and efficiently to get the tables turned over.

“Best in the city?”
Reviewed March 18, 2014 via mobile

I guess I have to agree with the reviewer who wondered how this place could be #1 or #2 in the city? Sure the food is good (albeit pricy), but I guess I was expecting much more based on such a high ranking. I might return if I'm in the area, but I'm sure there are some other gems yet to be discovered...
