Went here for a late dinner with my wife. She loved the Mac n Cheese, I enjoyed my Napa Burger. Service was quick, attentive, yet not overwhelming. Still pretty packed at 9 PM, I can see why. Thank you for a great meal.

Good food, bit a little higher price for lunch than what I am used to. Also noise level made it difficult for conversation. Food was good and will cone back for dinner.

Overall it was okay. Though I must say my friends and I chose this location because of the specials. Sunday draft beers 11-5 for $4. Yeah that is not true. We went at 1 and paid full price. $10 honey chicken and $6 Bloody Mary is under daily specials but when we went it was time yet so paid full price.

Been here many times! Unfortunately, this was not up to par this time! The service as terrible. The waitress was pleasant but, never check on us, had to ask for refills on water and soda.

the food was not as good as it had been in the past. 2 people in our party ordered burgers, they looked like they were run over by a truck. The Chopped salad came without chicken the first time around. I was seriously disappointed, we bragged to our friends before bringing them to on Saturday night to North Branch and were not happy with the experience.

First time at this restaurant. Welcoming environment from the moment you walk in. Great selection of mostly casual food. Moderately priced. You can go light in your food selection or you can eat heavier meals if you choose. Everything we ate, appetizer included, was very good. We’ll be back. Definitely recommend the place. Good for families or couples.

We had not been for a while and after a stressful day we wanted to be taken care of so we sat near the bar to enjoy quick bar service and the multiple TV screens. They were out of the special/poster offering of dry rose cider. That was disappointing.
We noticed a new version of wings on the menu we had not seen before – grilled and essentially smoked wings. They were quite tasty and we got buffalo sauce on the side to give them some heat. Eight large wings for $11 is a little more than we like to spend but they were very tender, fully cooked and had great flavor.
My better half had the burger with bacon, caramelized onions, barbecue sauce and cheddar – can’t remember the name. He said it was amazing. The fries now come out in one of those mini fryer baskets. Kind of liked them better when they were in the cone with the paper. They get colder this way pretty fast.
My entrée choice was a new taco we had not tasted before – crispy cheese with avocado. Ordered the chipotle cream on the side. It was a nice combination of flavors and the salsa (slightly smoky and finely chopped so you could spread it far and not have big pieces of tomato landing on your lap) served with it was great when mixed with the very plain side dish of rice.

Food was somewhat disappointing for the first time in many visits. But the manager came over several times, attended to our needs, gave us coupons for appetizers and free dessert that evening. He definitely showed that he wanted us to be happy and wanted future business. We will definitely return.
The restaurant is always crowded, so if you go early, it is less noisy.

You really can’t go wrong here. And it’s obvious people know it because it gets packed. We went Friday night at 7:30 as a bus load of people came for a party in the enclosed patio. We waited a short time to be seated as there were already people ahead of us. But they hustled and got us sat fairly quickly. Our waitress and bus staff as well as the managers were very efficient through it all. The food was great; burgers are always a hit, wedge salad, chicken and friends, pizza. And always a good selection of beers.
