    Service was alright. Took forever to get refills on drinks. Some of the absolute worse steak any of us have ever had. This is a beautiful setting. But we honestly would have all enjoyed McDonald’s more than what we had here. Really sucks because we choose this place over alot of others for our dinner night.

    It’s becoming more fast food. Like all restaurants, you can’t find help, so to manage the monkeys that you hire, you have to go to completely precooked preseasoned grilled-marked products that you just heat up at each franchise. That’s not what I’m looking for. I’d like an on-site prepared protein and carbs. I can get fast food at many places

    We went to celebrate my mother in law’s birthday. What a great experience. The the service. Our server went above and beyond. She was great. The food was really good. You have to try the salad they give you. It even comes with a croissant.

    We made a reservation for 5 for lunch. Our table was ready when we arrived. Our server got everything right and was attentive. We ordered 3 salads and 2 taco plates. Portions were nice size, filling, and tasty. Music was a little loud, but not so loud we couldn't converse. We had a nice time and would return.

    The food and service are excellent and the owners are the same as Carolina Roadhouse. Same menu and pricing. Salads are excellent as well as the main meal. We always get the ribs. They are fall off the bone excellent!

    I love the California dreaming salad. It is so filling and absolutely delicious with the hot bacon and honey mustard dressing. It’s a must try! Also your chicken fingers are delicious. They are made of real chicken not that frozen synthetic stuff!

    Our server didn’t understand my order. Ask for she-crap soup & chicken tender platter. My wife received her salad & inquired about soup. She stated soup will be out with dinner . Why?? Explained to her the soup should of been before the dinner. She served everything @ once. I explained to her that the dinner would be cold by the time I finished the soup. She stated the soup is pretty hot. That makes no sense. Apparently a new server . Need a little guidance. She was polite & sincere about answers. Finally the host you have is fantastic. She little older & wears glasses. Definitely a plus to o your success. Will continue to come back & enjoy dinners.

    I was disappointed in the chicken tenders. Expected them to be breaded and fried, but they were battered, deep fried and almost burnt. All others at our table were satisfied with their dinners. I’ll go back and order a different entree.

    The food was outstanding, place had a great vibe to it. Prices were reasonable considering the time. Service was fair at best, as it was obvious our server was relatively new. But you get that almost everywhere you go these days. Would definitely go back. We also love te one in Charleston

    Our experience was great. I had the marinated sirloin and it was delicious. My husband had the pork chops , they also were delicious but we both agreed maybe if they were served with some gravy on top that would have set them apart from anything else.
