“Good food but noisy bar area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I too was concerned because the restaurant was not busy on a Friday night. By 7:00 p.m. is was less than 1/3 full. Our waiter was attentive but a little bit hovering. That improved once he got a second table. We had the southwestern egg rolls to start with which were outstanding! We both had steak. My husband loved the mashed potatoes and I thought they were just ok. The bread was very good too but you have to ask for it! The mushroom sauce was also very good just wished they had put more on our plate. The caesar's salad was above average. The prices are exceptional especially when you have a 2:1 coupon (that come in those valuecoupons they mail to your residence). Here is the big negative. The bar is a VERY lively and LOUD area attached to the dining room. The waiters have to go into the bar area to get everything so the door gets open constantly. They had the juke box playing so loud on Friday night that the base rattled the dining room and drowned out the music being played in the dining room. Finally complained to the waiter at the end of the meal and the manager turned it dow (there were only about 10 people in the bar). Perhaps that is why the dining room is almost empty. Definately improved the expierence after I could hear

“Best Restaurant in Manassas Va”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

I enjoyed everything we had form the Ka Pow Shrimp, the Salads that come with your meal and the dinner. The service was great! We will be back again and again to this wonderful restaurant. Looking to try the Sunday Brunch Buffet that sounds so great!

“Very good salad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

The place wasn't busy, which concerned me. However, the chicken finger salad with honey mustard dressing was excellent. The Romaine lettuce was very fresh.

“Pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

We decided to try this restaurant since it was within walking distance to our hotel. We found the food to be very tasty. Out waiter was very accommodating and pleasant. The steaks we ordered were delicious and done just right. We look forward to trying this restaurant when we return to the area.
