Good service, decent food. Some music would have been nice. The door creaked very loudly every time it was opened which was annoying. Please have this fixed.

It wasn’t a wow. The server didn’t bring a straw for the drinks and then didn’t bring utensils with the food. Had to ask for both. She did ask if we wanted hot sauce but never delivered that. Thought the food would come out sizzling but it wasn’t and the portions seemed small.

Our waitress was wonderful, food was great (though the chips seemed different than other times). Loved the idea of the 3 small margaritas! A great night out!

I was a bit disappointed in the reduction of portion sizes. It is half of what it normally is. The rice now comes in a bowl on the skillet so that takes up half of the space. Tricky but obvious. The skillet used to be full. It was mostly onions and had minimal chicken. Our skillets did not arrive sizzling and we mildly warm.

The side of mushrooms was ordered by a friend I was with was cold and came to the table 20 minutes after our meals. It was forgotten and no one apologized and it remained on our bill after she said she didn't want them. Her dinner was done by the time they arrived.

I have not been disappointed before but this time I was. It is one of our favourtie places to go so it was a bit of a let down.

Our server was great!

Food was ok for the price, gravy was stone cold, server was nice. My wife ordered a well done steak and had to send it back 3 times as it was still “mooing” on her plate. By the time she got it, everyone else was done their meals and were ready to go, by that point she lost her appetite and ended up having to take it home. What a waste.

Some things were out of stock (Nachos) but my meal was so good.

The woman I was dining with has dietary restrictions and it would have been nicer to have on the menu what was in each meal, rather than her having to ask. Despite that the servers were knowledgeable about what was in each dish.

It was a business lunch and it was quiet enough for us to talk in the restaurant.

Everything was great except they were out of Diet Coke & Coke Zero (my wife’s choice of soft drink) and out of pico.

Understandable with supply chain issues

The service was great, the patio was great but the food was just okay. Daughter ordered the crispy chicken sandwich but the chicken was not crispy (she told me afterwards). I had the chicken tacos. The chicken tasted pretty good but there was no other real flavour to it. Missing some flavour to boost it. Service was fantastic though. Patio was clean and organized. Flower baskets were stunning. Comfortable seating. Just expected more with the food to be honest.

Food and service was good. I didn’t like all the sauce on my food. But it seems they put it on most things. I think the waitress should say it comes with a sauce on top.
But saying that I would definitely eat there again but would ask for no sauce on food

Food was OK. Croutons on Caesar salad were stale, dressing on Caesar salad left much to be desired.
Steaks were awesome mushrooms and grilled green peppers were awesome. Our server Phoenix was absolutely amazing

Service was very slow - we waited over an hour for our food to arrive. When it finally arrived it was good. We complained about the wait and the manager reduced our bill.

With it being our reopening again for the third time, I am thankful for all this place did to make our first dining experience well worth it. Having a sizzling platter of grilled chicken for fajitas again just made my day. Thank you to all that this restaurant’s crew has done to make our first day back, enjoyable.

I love the staff; extremely friendly. The only thing I would have changed is that it was a windy chilly day and they lit a fire beside someone’s table but never turned on the outdoor heaters around everyone else

It started to rain a bit just as we pulled up to our reservation. I saw that there was still a table available that had an umbrella and I requested it. There was no one in front of us but at first they told us there were none available and I had to bring her to the window to show her. The hostess went to talk to management and yes we could have it. So as we are walking up to our table, another server grabs the umbrella and brings it to a table that already had an umbrella. So they now had two umbrella's. There were multiple tables that had 2 umbrella's. We thought for sure someone would go and get one for us but they just pretended it never happened. We sat out as it was spitting deciding what we should do as it wasn't full on raining but was a little uncomfortable. One of the tables that had 2 umbrella's, half the table was leaving so they moved an umbrella to a table over. My husband went to take it as we had ours stolen and the manager came out and said no you can't take it as she has someone waiting for an umbrella. He said too bad, someone took ours as we walked up, they can wait for a little longer as we are sitting out in the rain. They didn't care about anyone's comfort. I understand that its our choice to sit on the patio but for other tables to have 2 umbrellas and we had none was a little unfair. They had a table with an umbrella under the big canopy which made no sense whatsover. They just didn't care. Will we be back, unfortunately not.

Dinner and service was good as usual. Tables spaced properly for Covid. They take
reservations, which is good. The only complaint we had was steak was tougher than normal, but everything else good.
