If you've never been to one of these it's kind of an experience. You take a bowl and put a lot of raw food in it and add your own seasonings and then take it to a huge Grill where the chef Cooks it for you. Depending on how good you are at matching and mixing the things that you're... More

I have been here a few times. My adult kids like it. Every time our bill is wrong as they ask quickly how many bowls BUT some just get salad, etc. So we always overpay. I didn't eat much. A lot of money for one bowl with salad . Maybe tired of this different type of restaurant, but I felt... More

We ate here at lunch with a co-worker. It was quick, according to our own selection of ingredients, and the service was always there to fill up my glass of iced tea. The food was not bad but seemed a little lower quality but with all the different sauces was good when cooked. Will eat here again.

Micah was in the area up for lunch. WNted a change of pace and this was a perfect choice. Totally dedicated grill. Grab a bowl, fill with your choices (quite a mound can be generated, and deliver to the chef for preparation. Really neat concept and execution.

No one hardly takes reservations anymore, especially for a party of 27 on a Saturday. I called the restaurant about 3 hours before we were going to be there and talked to Josh, the manager. He had the "Private room" set up when we got there after a family member's graduation. The waitress did a great job, and Josh came... More

Pricey for what you get. Music was too loud. Overpriced as in $50 for 3, no salad, no drinks. Food was dry and overcooked. We won't be going back.

Had dinner here with my wife parents and mother in law. It was my treat as they've helped my wife and I move. One can eat plenty without falling into the trap of also getting appetizers and desert. The clerk messed up and charged me for someone else ticket so it better get corrected in the next day or so.
