This restaurant was on a direct line between our hotel and Southcenter Mall. I had heard a lot of good reviews about this chain over the years, so we decided to check it out for dinner. Given the huge crowds outside, it appeared to be popular. The estimated 50-55 minute wait confirmed it. We took our pager and headed to the Mall to do some back to school shopping. We got back 40 minutes later and found out we had already been paged, but the hostess said that she would ensure we got the next table. 5 minutes later we were being seated. We really enjoyed the meal. The bread was good, our calamari appetizer was really good, and the kids enjoyed their pasta. DW really enjoyed her shrimp tacos and I like the Cajun Pasta. We all split a piece of Dutch Apple cheesecake for dessert. We will definitely go back to this chain the next time we end up near one.

I was shocked at the quick service and delicious food we had at this restaurant for a Saturday evening. The place was packed. The lines was long. We were told we would have to wait 30-45 minutes for a table...no problem, we saw it was packed and were willing to wait. After 20 minutes we were seated and before long we were enjoying our drinks and appetizers. Our meal was absolutely delicious, huge portions, enough to share, not hurried, and had very pleasant young waitstaff, all with smiles! It was a wonderful and yummy experience!

Wow, what a great place to eat. We waited for about 20 minutes on a Friday night but it was well worth the time. Food was outstanding, and very good service. I had the Chicken and Biscuit and it was really good. Needed a little more gravy but all you have to do is ask. We will go back next time we are close to one.
