“First & Last time”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

One of the hottest days in heat wave, AC wasn't turned on early enough, appetizer missing component, food wasn't bad, not many choices if you are looking for healthier option, service was not great. Skip this one!

“Bad Experience”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

Visited there for lunch. Our first clue should have been that there were quite a few people there, but nobody had their food. We were seated right away, and our order taken fairly quickly, but it went downhill from there. It took a very long time before we got our food (25-30 minutes), and we didn't think what we ordered was worth the money. I had a Cabrese Panini, which was very tiny (like the end pieces from a round loaf of bread). There was hardly any cheese on it, one thin slice of tomato, and a smear of pesto sauce. Not quite worth the $9.00, especially since it came with a small bag of chips - not even fries. The hamburger we ordered was a good size, but we asked for it to be cooked medium/well, and it was quite pink in the middle. The "crispy" bacon mentioned on the menu wasn't crispy in the least. Once I determined that the hamburger was not raw, just pink, we ate it anyways since we were starving and had a tour boat reservation we need to get to.

There were quite a few servers milling around, but no one ever came to any of the tables to let us know the status of our orders. I would never go back, nor would I recommend this restaurant.
