Needed more selection of entrées, since they were changing ownership they were limited on selections

All of our meals were subpar. A wedding was going on, no door to close off noise. Felt like we were attending wedding as they had a microphone and dj.
Also mix in the noise from the bar, dining rm and people coming and going and we couldn't hear ourselves think. Similar to playing 3 radio stations at once while trying to hold a conversation.
We don't recommend this place!
Long ago it was country western and nice. Now they aren't sure what they are a Hawaiian ranch? Doesn't work. Decor is confused also.

The food was mediocre and the service was subpar. They delivered our entrees before the appetizer. When we complained, they originally offered to bring it out. We had to ask them to take our entrees back to the kitchen. While we were still eating the appetizer, they tried to serve our entrees. The manager comp'd us a bottle of wine for the mixup, which was a nice gesture, but I wouldn't go back.

I have been to this restaurant several times and previously had good experiences. This time was horrible. It was filthy to begin with. You had to walk through areas of sticky I don't know what. The booth we sat in had food in the grooves and there was food on the floor. We tried to order a few things from the menu that were not available. I ended up getting a soup that was decent except for the long black hair in it. My friend had a pasta that was tasteless. I hope they can get their act together. I seriously doubt that I will return though.

The restaurant was recommended by the hotel. Hawaiian related steaks generally mean some form of citrus marinate. Tried the skirt steak when they indicated a filet was not available. Well flavored throughout, but would have preferred more of a steak vs fruin taste. Service was ok, but generally I like someone to stop by the table within 5 min or less of my being seated. They weren't that busy when I visited, so not certain. After they did arrive, they were quite helpful on making recommendations and keeping the food coming there after.
Overall, a nice place if you are in the mood for Hawaiian-style steak, just forget about the filet mignon.

When we walked into the resturant the sign said No Sushi tonight, strange for a Sushi restaurant. Half of all the menus provided had white paper cutouts showing that these items were not available. They only had one steak available. They had no shrimp. They had no pork chops. Part of the appetizer menu was not available. Most of our party had to order the Chicken, Shrimp, Vegetable, pasta and cream sauce dish, which contained no shrimp and very little cream sauce. Additionally none of the pasta dishes served had the same amount of ingredients and the sauce was bland.

We will not return to this resturant next time we come back and will not recommend it to any of our relatives who visit this area.

The cocktails and bar were great, but upon being seated in the main restaurant for dinner, you saw all around tables waiting to be helped and no one to help them. They also were out of have the things on their menu, so who knows how good the food could have been.

We went here as a family for Mothers Day. I stated when we arrived that I had a seafood allergy and asked if I could order off the menu as to not be exposed to the contamination on their buffet and the host said after checking with management NO. They suggested I leave and try Dennys down the street.

I had a great dinner experience on Friday 4/15. My birthday.
We were greeted and seated immediately. A very large cozy booth. Then immediately greeted by a lovely waitress. I had very thick pork chops with wonderful terriyaki glazed veggies.
I was treated to a complimentary birthday treat. I enjoyed this place.

It has been a while since I was here. I think the food has improved and the menu offers a better selection for lunch
