Rated 2 out of 5 by from Chicken was dry and had little flavor. Steak was not great quality. We left unsatisfied considering our bill total before certificate was almost $70. The server was very nice. He food came in a decent amount of time. Just felt their food wasn’t very tasty.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Salads were seriously delayed. Entrees followed way too soon. Wait staff copped real attitude when we asked them to keep the entrees under the heat lamp. Too nice a restaurant for lousy waitstaff!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is a "Save your Money" moment. We purchased a certificate to try this place. Waste of time and money! Our reservation was at 7:30pm and we got sat right away but went down hill from there. It took quite a while for anyone to acknowledge us and then to get our drinks. We waited 45 minutes for two salads, fish tacos and a broiled tilapia dinner. Salads were ok (kinda hard to mess up), the soup was cold, fish tacos were bland with hardly any topping and when I asked for more of the chipotle sauce they brought salsa and they were served on cold flour tortillas. The broiled tilapia was left under the heat lamp too long because most of it was dried out. On a positive note; the fries were yummy - just like at the fair. Our waitress did not even come back to ask if everything was okay and we had to grab her from another table to ask for water refills. When we left; there was an employee (hostess I think) bouncing a plastic-wrap ball off of the wall with a man who appeared to be an manager/owner just watching. Save your money as there are soooo many other places to eat.
