This restaurant is somewhat of a landmark. The menu is varied with lots of choices and the food is consistently good.

“80 th Surprise Birthday Party”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

With our group of 20 the service wasn't too bad. The wait was,of course, longer than if we would have been a party of 2. Having worked as a waitress I know that a restaurant does not serve one meal until ALL are ready to be taken to the table..This often results in some meals being lukewarm if the group is large.. Having said this everyone seemed pleased with the temperature of their dishes. One member of the party ordered a tray of bruschetta appetizers to share. We liked it and ordered two more trays that didn't come until we were almost finished with our meals.

My sister who lives in Knoxville suspects that they have a new chef. She said that the prosperity steak was so spicy she could hardly eat it the last time she was there.

Overall, it was an okay experience.

“Disappointing Meal”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

Visiting the city, we left the mall late and stopped here for dinner. The experience was mostly sub-par. There was a 25 minute wait when we arrived so we opted to sit in the bar. The service was average at best with our waitress(not a bartender) more interested in talking to people at the bar then focusing on us. The meal portions were small for price and the taste was nothing special. Best part of my meal, crab cake dinner, was the salad. Asparagus side was four extremely small stalks that were so salty I didn't eat them.

“Disappointing evening”
Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

Perfect example of when a restaurant should not seat more patrons than it can handle. Busy night, which for this restaurant means very slow service, food being served no longer hot, and our table having to ask for drink refills, spoons to stir tea, sweetener, bread, coffee and finally dessert. A waitress clearing adjacent table actually told us that because our table had 9 people instead of 10 that she couldn't help our lone waiter. So we continued to wait. Clam chowder tasted like soup thickener with no clam taste at all. Shrimp skewers were cooked to the point of being glued to skewer. Steaks are better at Flemings, Ruth's and Connor's. Really a shame; used to be a treat eating here.
