“Wowed us from start to finish!”
Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

First off I will say that we waited across the lot at Bahama breezes for 40 minutes and they misquoted us and said it would be 40 minutes more. Luckily BJ's had no wait (I can't imagine why) so we went here for dinner. Kristen was our server and she was awesome. Attentive, knowledgable about the menu and great with the kids!

We ate the corn fritters, appetizer sampler platter and the Ahi tuna appetizer (we were starving). They were all fresh and delicious. The sampler platter had these avocado rolls that were out if this world, mozzarella sticks, sante fe chicken Spring rolls and a delicious spinach dip and chips. Their beers are their own brews and we had the Abby Normal brew in a pitcher, as per Kristen's suggestion and it was very good and complimented what we ate. The kids drank delicious cream soda and orange cream soda, also their own brews.

Our main dishes were out of this world. I had the Cajun chicken pasta, my kids had the chicken Alfredo fettuccine pasta, double burger platter and the parm crusted chicken. My husband had the New Orleans jambalaya and he loved it! The portions were so big that we all had leftovers! We all had to save room for dessert and we shared a White macadamia nut Pizookie (a portion of the sales get donated to cystic fibrosis, one of our favorite charities!). It was a large fresh baked white macadamia nut cookie and scoop of vanilla Ice cream.

Everything was fresh and delicious. The service and staff, including the manager that came to the table, were all so professional and friendly! We have never been so glad to have had to leave a restaurant and stumble on this gem!!! We can't wait to go back and we hope North Carolina gets one soon!!

“Nice Happy Hour and appetizer”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Wife and I stopped in for a Happy Hour glass of wine and sat at the bar. We were welcomed and our order was taken immediately by the bartender. We both ordered the house wine and it was served very cold and the pour was generous. We looked at the appetizer menu but my wife did not find anything she really wanted. She then asked our bartender if it were possible to just get some tortilla chips and salsa, and the bartender sent in the order, though it was not on the menu. A short time passed and a server brought over a generous plate of warm, thin tortilla chips and a bowl of very good tasting salsa that had a slight chili note but was not hot. This was a very good appetizer and we ended up having a second glass of wine. We will definitely come back here in future when in the area. The bar was comfortable and the bartender very personable.

“Great Value and Lunch”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

I had a business lunch last week and I had a great burger and onion rings. The food was delish and the service was outstanding. Greg did an awesome job and it was about $10 a person. I'm going back when I can!

“Quite impressive.”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

Saw this new restaurant in the parking lot, looked up the menu online (printed off the $5 off coupon), and gave it a try Friday night. Casual dining in or out. Large drink glasses and large portions. The menu was extensive, rivaling Cheesecake Factory's pages of offerings, just not the same amount of desserts offered. The food tasted great and we had enough for lunch the following day.

“Top of the line training and service!”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

You can tell when a server has been trained well. The vocabulary, the actions, the demeanor. It was on point! Melvin was our server and although a tad shy or quiet he nailed every aspect of making guests happy and enjoying their meal.

This place is a gem. Lunch is so cheap! Our daughter had the spaghetti from the kids menu and claimed it tasted funny. Hubs confirmed it but she enjoyed the triangle shape crayons and root beer!

I wish there was a location closer to home! I'd be a huge fan!!!

Food and beer were delicious for us adults!
