My waiter Chris was not the best. Kept forgetting stuff and was bringing orders in parts? I had to wait for my last order for 10 minutes before it was brought to me, mind you I had to flag down another waiter that instead of helping me just tells me I’ll get Chris wait a minute.

On top of that, our grill in our first table was not working at all and I had three people on top of my table hovering my meats with the greasing grill because they were fixing it right there. They were so adamant on fixing it with us seating there instead of just changing us to a working table. No sorry no attentiveness or nothing. Had to move us to a different table after they couldn’t fix it. Sat us in the corner and Chris just forgot about us. I was perplexed because we had already a bad experience and they were not trying to make their service better.

Love this place but I definitely don’t come here for the service. Tables dirty and silverware too. Always double check and request clean utensils

We had a 1:45 PM reservation and they sat us at 2:40pm. The hostess was awful! The server was great. She was also the bartender so she was pulling double duty and never missed a beat. The hostess was not friendly. She ignored everyone and was on her phone most of the time. Food was good. Hostess was awful! Server was great

Usually a great chain. I think it was all the new hires from covid. Poorly mana aged. Grill needed charcoal, appetizers came out cold, service was extremely slow. Step it up management!

The host was extremely unprofessional, didn’t acknowledge us at all when it came down to the actual food they were low on inventory which is understandable.

Sat pretty quickly, but with the lunch menus and it was happy hour, and were not given happy hour menus, (which is on the regular menus), and it took about 20 minutes to have a server come to our table. Perhaps they were just coming onto their shift, that's understandable, however, the hostess should have come and mentioned something at the least, or get us water maybe? The server was knowledgable and polite and prompt once we got started.

The food is not what it use to be. The only thing that hasn’t changed is the meat. Everything else has no flavor and is very bland. Prior to covid everything was fantastic but this place has gone downhill. Will not be returning

Combo selection not like b4. Ppl who don't eat beef can only ordered separately. Ordered a soup and server said kitchen just start making after one hour later. Also missed couple dishes. Very disappointed. Food quality is good but seems They need more training on their staff

The restaurant pretty much was low on everything from the kids juices to kids cups, ice cream. They didn’t have much our experience was a terrible one, we went for my husbands bday and once I told the waiter he said we only have green tea ice cream and upon bringing it he tells my husband we normally sing happy birthday but our staff is a little tied up and said happy birthday and walked away. Who wants to hear that on their bday???? Rude, never returning.

Ashley was our server and did amazing! She tended to our needs every second she had (while still tending to others). When she first introduced herself she even asked if we’d like a breakdown of how everything worked. She was very patient, polite and attentive. Hostess in the front was also amazing! She updated us on everything with our table and how long it’d be, which it was only like at most a 5 minute wait with reservation. Overall this place was amazing!! Also, another server helped with paying & getting my receipt when they passed by and saw I was struggling with the machine. The whole staff is great and food was also great! It wasn’t packed and seemed very relaxed.

The service was horrible, you are required to make a reservation to a empty restaurant 🤔. The price of the food doesn’t match the quality or flavor. You don’t get all that’s supposedly offered. This restaurant used to be good and now it’s just a waste of space.
Close it down!!

It was my birthday . I would like to say the service we received from Thomas was great but the service we received from the hostess was poor and upsetting I had a 6:30 reservation and was sat at 6:52 when she had told me that they just needed to bus some tables 10 minutes after I checked in at 6:20 and pointed at the tables behind her in which she ended up seating a reservation that was clearly after mine . That has never happened and was very upsetting to the point I almost left

Husband wanted all you can eat... hard to compete with others in the area that offer ayce for the same amount you pay for a fraction of the meat. Meat potions seemed a lot smaller than in the past as well.
