The host when we came in was so welcoming! She seated my bff and I so fast. The waiter was such a doll! So sweet, her eyes make me remember her the next time. I had the Turkey burger and my bff had the wings! The food was the bomb. Even though it was something wrong with the burger the waitress and manager offered me another meal and even took the burger off. I didn’t want to trouble them at all because their food is GREAT! But they helped the situation out in the most professional way. The drinks was good, not many options but they do the job ☺️ I’ve seen friends there that I knew so I knew this place was already 5 stars! I’ll always come back and next time I come back I’ll remember them eyes and the manager on duty that helped us out. Continue the great hospitality and serving us all durning this pandemic. You guys are the best and I hope you all stay safe durning this Covid crisis. See you all see🥳

Better than I expected. Staff was very friendly and prompt. Teriyaki chicken wings were a tad salty but flavor was great. Entrees were enjoyed by everyone at the table. I had the Turkey Burger which was good, but the next time I will order one of their Wok Bowls. Casual restaurant. Noise level was acceptable. I would go again the next time I'm in the area.

Salad portion size was small for the money. Not a lot of toppings on the Cobb salad. Nothing special. Disappointing.

Really really poor experience.

Food was basic at best: The salad was covered in BBQ sauce for whatever unknown reason. The burger was something you’d expect at a fast food place and the sweet potato fries tasted like plastic.

This place should be renamed BGI Fridays.

My friend and I had. Lovely experience here for lunch on a busy day for the restaurant. The delicious salads and luscious chocolate cake and, especially the gracious and attentive waiter made up for the noise level at the height of the lunch crowd. E lingered long as the crowd thinned out and were treated royally. Thank you to the staff!

Oh my gosh!! This restaurant ticked all the boxes! We had the sweet potato chips with guacamole to start and that just set the whole tone for the main course. It was delicious!
My hubby got the turkey burger with the Kale slaw and he said the burger was fresh and delectable. He went as far to say the best turkey burger he has ever had. My chicken wok bowl was just as yummy. To top it off, we had the sweetest, sassiest adorable waitress Sasha. She was just as competent as she was friendly. She anticipated our needs before we could ask. We are going back tonight to try a different menu item. You will not be disappointed!!!

Very friendly and attentive waitress and at the end of the night when the traffic died down, some of the staff sat down to watch the game which was really fun. Great atmosphere for watching sports etc while still having great service and food! One of my favorite spots for date night.

I’ve walked past this place many times over the years and finally decided to give it a try last night. I’m so glad I did! All the food was amazing and our server was awesome! I would highly recommend the Brussels sprouts salad and the grill fired artichokes! Both were amazing!

Wonderful experience. Restaurant is Covid conscience and felt extremely safe. Be sure to make prior reservations as COVID restaurant restrictions are heavily enforced (appreciated). If you’re lucky you will get Brandon as your server. A+ experience.
