Good food, great service. We ate on a Friday afternoon, before the supper rush. Food was hot and tasty.

Great for late night dining and checking out the sports (we're fond of the bar seating). Outdoor seating availability is a plus. Fun apppies that we love - especially the appy tacos.

I have to say that is very consistant in terms of the food quality, they have nice drinks and desserts as well. I love the sirlion steak with cheese and shrimp with a baked potato and steamed vegetables. The only bad thing is that they not longer have in their menu the chocolate mousse shooter, one of the best mousse... More

Place was dirty, dirty booths and table. Hostess dropped our menues and walked away. There was food in both of our waters. Food was okay and server was okay as well. Luckily we dont live in the area because we would never eat here again.

Right whwn we got in, we were led to be seated and in just a couple of minutes we were asked what we wanted to drink and were provided with them quickly. The food we ordered also came quickly, considering that there were so many people there at the time. Overall, it was a great experience! :)

Went there for dinner with my wife & daughter and I have to tell you... The food was horrible and the drinks we ordered (lemonade) was very watery. We asked the waiter to fix the watered down lemonade and got the drinks back almost the same. The rice served with our orders was really hard and warm. Like day old... More

Food is good. Drinks are even better. Parking is terrible. Wait staff was friendly. Very busy in the evening and on weekends. If you can get there before 6 on weekdays. you will be better off.

Ate here after a movie. Conveniently near AMC theater and other shops. Sister only eats gluten free and they offer an extensive selection. Had the lemon grilled chicken which was a fairly healthy dish, not drenched in fat. The 2 for $20 deal is quite generous.
