Went here on a family recommendation, there was a group of 7 of us. I enjoyed a pizza, everyone else had good looking and tasty dishes too. The service was good with a very friendly gal who served us (sorry I forget her name)

I love Guy Fieri and his shows. I also love to support local restaurants. In this case to me it's a 3. The food seems to be a step above Applebees, maybe I am just a spoiled foodie that's used to the quality of Sonoma County restaurants. It is worth a visit, I can't say I would go back.

When this first opened years ago, food was good, eclectic and interesting. Overtime the food has devolved into 'average'. It's still a popular place, active bar and happy hour, but they need to hit the 'reset' button on the food and menu choices.

This restaurant has a wide and varied menu. Their is something for everyone including kids. It is a casual place and I think best for lunch but lots of people go there for dinner. The dishes are from the very usual to spicy with an international touch. I have eaten there a number of times and have never had a... More

There were 6 of us (3 couples) who ordered everything from the bison burger, to fish and chips, to fish tacos to chicken. We all thought that what we had ordered was very tasty and well-prepared. Our waitress was delightful: very bubbly and friendly. They put 2 tables together to seat us and I only mention it because we were... More

Slightly disappointing experience and felt bad for our relatives who had chosen this place. Waitress took our order but then the kitchen had run out of key ingrediants fish and chips. This was early Sunday evening so no excuse. They then realised just as we did that the supermarket was still open and miraculously fries were back on the menu.... More

A bit overpriced. It has gone up since we started going there years ago. I would still go there despite the high prices because they are very kid friendly and they have really delicious unique food.

I do stop in for lunch occasionally since it is convenient for me, but the food isn't that great really, even with the new menu. I do like the won tacos though. They now have a baby kale caesar salad that is really awful. Something about the texture of the kale makes it almost gluey. But they will make it... More

I almost didn't go to this delicious restaurant because of the two negative reviews I got from people I met in Windsor. But I'm so glad I ignored their comments and got a chance to try it myself. The ribs were the best I've ever had! However, they were not served with their amazing BBQ sauce which I finally received... More
