“Good value & good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2011

Our waitress, although young was very sweet and attentive. We ordered an appetizer of the stuffed Mushrooms which they were out of (a bit surprising). But all in all the atmosphere was nice, casual, and comfortable. The portions were large and gave us leftovers for the next day. The total bill for two was about $40 and that included our meals, salads, and a few beers.

“This was a great place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2010

We found this place by accident and ended up loving it. There were 6 adults and 3 two year olds and everyone loved their food. We were very pleased with the service, the food and the atmosphere here. This was the beginning of our vacation and probably one of the best meals we had in over a week. This was our first time at the chain and the manager came out and made sure we liked everything and gave us cards for a free dessert if we came back on our way home or knew of anyone else coming that way. We will definitely go back if we head back to Holland (or see another restaurant in another city we visit). If you see one, it's worth a try.

“Great service, delicious...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2008

Great service, delicious desserts and the best eggplant parmigiana around. The moves to paper napkins and smaller portions were a step backwards however.

“Big Meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2008

As expected, the food is great and plentiful. Go easy on the bread and salad so you save room for the entree!! I always end up taking home half of my meal because there's so much of it.

The Italian Nacho appetizer is yummy!! So's the lasagne, jalepeno talapia, crab ravioli, shrimp scampi.... basically the whole menu's great!!

The service was good and very nice staff. We went just before the typical dinner crowd (5 or 5:30-ish) so we got seated almost immediately.

I've been her many times and always have great food and great service.
