We went for a late lunch/early dinner. Was a good time of the day to go. I had the Grouper Reuben which was excellent. The service was great and very efficient. Would never have a problem with going back again.

It was fine. We would eat there again. We went for breakfast on our way out of town. They also have a gift shop. The breakfast was reasonably pried and there was a good variety of food.

Went here mainly because of the name. Typical "chain." Good portions, but way over-priced. Service was good, but beyond that.
