The wife and I stopped in for a quick Sunday lunch. She had a bowl of vegetable beef soup which had plenty of meat and was quite tasty. I ordered broccoli cheese soup and salad. They were out of this soup and the waitress suggested Brunswick stew that she promised would be very good. It turned out that her tastes... More

This is a restaurant I have frequented most Thursdays for a couple of years. I love chicken wings and theirs were crispy. The food is still pretty good although I usually order vegetable skewers too, and those used to be good, but now they're essentially raw. When I went yesterday, the hostess seemed surprised that I was there to eat,... More

When downtown Athens is crowded, this is a nice relaxing place to go for lunch or dinner. The food and service are good, and we have never had to wait upon arrival. The menu has many selections as well, so there is something for everyone to choose.

With so many great places in Athens, avoid this place. Horrible service, had to go find someone every time we needed a drink, napkins, or check. Was more concerned about their trivia night.

Went for happy hour and dinner on Tuesday night - margaritas were good (we had mango and raspberry). Also had the wings - 50 cents each on Tuesday! I had the honey garlic - they were yummy. For a chain restaurant, the food and prices were good.

We were out shopping today and decided to step into this restaurant for lunch. There was no one at the front to greet us, so we grabbed a menu to have a look, and then someone finally came by to seat us. We ordered a couple of beverages and water, which we never received. (And it's hot outside today) We... More
