Not a bad place for a change of pace. Good prices and lots of choices and this is a well run and clean place to eat.

Retired couple who eat here about 2 times a month. I usually do not review a chain, but this restaurant is exceptional!! Great food with great service. Menu selection is varied. Sometime my wife and I only eat a selection of appetizers. Brian S, server, provided outstanding service.

Great meal! Wonderful service from Justin! My husband had the three cheese chicken cavatapi. He said he'd definitely order again. I had chicken strips. Will go back real soon!

Went with a few friends. Great atmosphere, great service! The waitress was very consistent in making sure our table was taken care of. The food came out in a timely manner. Hot and delicious! The beverage options were amazing. Overall, 4 stars

Very poor service to begin with. The table behind us was never bussed in the 1.5 hours we were there. There were hardly any customers, but our server never came to our table to refill drinks, give us silverware, or check on our food. Had to ask at least 2 other servers to get our requests. Bathroom was very dirty.

Excellent service and good food. One of our items was dropped by accident by a server so they made it right with a fresh item.
