Very typical chain restaurant. Not a long wait for food, food was decent for what you would expect of a chain. It was good, a nice experience but nothing fancy or out of the ordinary. Nothing bad to say

Went for lunch and ordered the California dreaming salad with the house dressing. My husband ordered the fried chicken tenders and fries. Both were very good.

Delicious meal. Waitress wasn’t friendly, it was obvious she didn’t want to be there. She was very inattentive and we had to ask another waitress for a drink refill. She brought the check to us before asking if we wanted dessert, which we did. Again, the food was delicious.

Table was wet when we sat down . I had San Francisco shrimp they were good not great - over seasoned,more then enough food. Husband had steak, cooked right- mashed potatoes that weren’t creamy and still had lumps. And he didn’t like the coleslaw very liquidy. The beer was cold- my sour good. Might eat lunch there if someone suggested it

Several times here and mostly the food is charred. They did it with the ribs badly, chicken was burnt charred and dried, steak was over seasoned and charred too much. Grill is obviously not in control of flames. Manager offered no support but servers agreed it was an ongoing issue to char most of the foods. Guess they don’t know how to cook s as my other way

We went for my sons 25 birthday. I really wish CA Dreaming would do something for birthdays. Our server said it was not their policy. Plenty of other restaurants do. So I’ll remember that next time we celebrate a birthday or anniversary.

Using OpenTable enabled us to be seated within a few minutes of arriving. Our waiter, Elijah, remembered us from the last time we came, which was several months ago. He remembered we liked coffee and offered to make us some. The food was delicious, consistent, and not too seasoned or salty. Overall, we enjoyed our dinner and especially appreciate that Elijah recalled who we were and even where we sat! :)

Stopped in to visit my daughter. Love the house salad, croissant and chicken fingers! We always come here when we are in town.

Sweet tea is really sweet so get half and half if you don’t want it that sweet.

Busy early evening on this particular Saturday.
Food was good (wife's steak was burnt for the second time in a month) when it arrived.
Second attempt arrived in short order and was cooked perfectly.
Service at the bar, and Ebony our server were great.
Can't wait until they are fully staffed and things get back to normal.

The Cali-Flawr appetizer was delicious! The blackened Alfredo was so-so. No flavor to the sauce. The croissant bread pudding was delicious. So, 2 out of 3 were really good!

Reserving a table via the website was great! The wait was about 10 min. The food was good. I like that the menu changes a bit now but I miss some of the items that were cut. Like spinach nachos. Overall, it’s still one of the best restaurants in Augusta.
