they gave us a seat in quieter section of the restaurant so we could talk. They let us order from lunch menu at dinner time. The club sandwich was tasty and strawberry lemonade also OK. The server ASKED if fries were OK--should have chosen a healthier/tastier alternative.

There is no GM in sight and the wait staff is incredibly slow and never around when needed. They even seemed somewhat argumentative when making 2 mistakes with our order. Food remains decent, for a franchise.

We visit this location about every 3 weeks, and it might be time to stop going. The food is decent and consistent, but the servers are pretty bad - they used to be much better. There are more than 6 restaurants within 1/2 mile of this location. Too many options to deal with ongoing service issues. The managers here are... More

We tried the new Cedar Grilled Lemon Chicken and were most happy with it. We also tried the new grilled vegetables and they were also very good. You can eat healthy and not break the wallet with these two items. We had a wonderful server (Kara) who was helpful and friendly.
