food was okay. Nothing to really write home about! Jambalya recipe had changed since last time we had visited. Service was terrible. Even a coupon will not inspire me to return!

Great at times depends on when you visit. Sometimes they do not have enough waitresses. Very pretty inside. Wonderful for special occasions. They have started sending me coupons which I like to use . Food taste pretty good. I like the cleanliness of the restaurant too. God is good.

The tomato basil soup is to die for and they have to go containers so you can take some home--yum! Everything else is good too. You can't go wrong with anything you order hwew!

This is more like a Deli with really good sandwiches, salads, etc. All made fresh. We stop here when ever we are in Hixson , TN

I wish I could have said the place was great but I just couldn't. The decor and building looked dated and needed to be updated. The food was ok not great, service was slow and quite a few of the meals were either cold, wrong and the burgers buns were soggy.

I signed up for their emails and get a bogo entry weekly! I love the different options for food and I haven't tasted anything I don't like yet! The ambience is great, and it's a different spin than the other chains in the area.

One of the places we are most likely to take guest to eat. Some of them say, Let's eat at Mimi's. We've loved it there, specially the New Orleans room, because that's a favorite destination for us. The breads are good and they'll bring oil for dipping if you ask. The brown bread with raisins is so good we always... More

We try and go to this chain when ever we find one as we travel. Some disappoint, most are very good, but this one was excellent! Food and service were top notch. They still have my favorite corn chowder and those tasty warm breads and muffiins, but have added new dishes we tried with wine and honey and even lavender.... More

We like to eat here when we all don't really know what we want to eat because they have such a wide range of menu items to suit different cravings. I've eaten here a few times and it is always great. Staff is always friendly too!
