The food is well seasoned and freshly prepared. The service was excellent. The wait may be a little long but, it is extremely convenient that they send a link that allows you to monitor your position in line without being there. I and my husband walked around Bowie Town Center. I ordered both the farmhouse skillet and the French toast. It was way too much to eat. I highly recommend you try it for yourself.

The food is good -- let's start there. I enjoy the variety and the unique offerings. And the prices are reasonable.

However!!! There are not enough workers to make visiting the restaurant a pleasant experience.
--Walk in the door -- wait. Eventually someone may take your name
--Seated at your table -- wait. Maybe someone will come to take your order, or you may have to resort to asking a busboy if there *is* a server assigned to your table.
--Place your order -- wait. When the food finally comes, it is tasty, but you can easily wait 20+ minutes for it.
--Ready to pay -- wait. There may be no one at the register or the worker there may also be seating customers, leaving everyone else waiting.
