I was very disappointed. Made reservations on Open Table and when we arrived to celebrate my husband special day, the restaurant didn’t have our reservation.
They seated us anyway but didn’t know we were celebrating a special occasion.
Our waitress took my order for an appetizer and my husband wanted to order but she didn’t ask him and left. She didn’t fill our drinks regularly. She even commented forgetting about us.
I know a lot of place are short handed but the service, lack of attention to detail made for a really bad experience.
I love the ahi nachos and my husband loved the beer cheese burger.
We were there at 3pm on a Sunday, not that busy either so service should’ve been better. Also their bathroom was not picked up.
Still need to pay attention to the restroom regularly and a shame they don’t.
Still debating whether we will come back which is a shame.

Made a reservation for a birthday, place is empty and they gave us the crappiest table by a door and bus dishing station. So i asked to be reseated outside. The table was nice enough until they sat a noisy kid family. Food was unimpressive and it took forever just to get drinks. Not one person mentioned the birthday. So it was disappointing.

Not many people but hard to get service. Seem to be out of the most popular beers.. ordered the beer cheese burger with no beer cheese and waiter didn't check back so I ate it anyway. Nice servers though.

Food was ok, nothing special. The music was really loud where we were seated and I asked my server to turn it down, and she did. She was very attentive and accommodating and the best part of our dining experience.

27 minute greet time. I've worked in the restaurant industry for over a decade, and I would never permit a 27 minute greet time in one of my restaurants. We've frequented this restaurant many times before and love the food and the value it provides but management has clearly let basic training slip. We sat for 20 minutes before I went up to the hostess to ensure she sat us in the right section or if our section even had a server assigned to it and then watched as she went to the server stand and the servers actively fought to not have to take the table, mind you within earshot of us. The server who I guess drew the short straw finally comes up and pretends nothing is wrong and greets us like nothing happened. Needless to say we decided to take our business elsewhere. Absolutely embarassing. Manager on Duty should be ashamed. Before the excuse of Covid causing understaffing is brought up I want to point out I've been a frequent patron throughout the pandemic and on this occasion you had more than four servers for ten tables. There are dozens of restaurants in the valley doing much more with far less.

there was a guy playing guitar in the dining room. It was good music just way to loud. I felt like we had to shout to have a conversation. I guess it was helpful that it was so loud cause we had a very happy 4 year old in our party. Who couldn’t stop laughing and asking what song is this ? Lol

It was so loud I couldn’t hear the person sitting next to me. Food wasn’t very good. And we waited 30 mins for the waitress to bring us the checks. I’d pass on this place.

The hostess was very rude while seating us and was very rude again when we asked if a server could come over to us after we waited for 15 minutes with no service. The hostess said she would go tell someone so we went back to the table but we saw that she didn’t go over to a server so we ended up leaving. We were very disappointed.

The bacon cheddar tots are very very good. We should have just got a couple more orders of those and called it good. The burgers ordered medium well came out charred to being almost inedible. The buns were stale. I had a side of coleslaw which came out lukewarm, didn't seem right but either way it wasn't very good.

The place was not crowded meaning it was quiet. However I can see if it gets busier I can see it getting way louder. The food was good however, the $4 upcharge for their 8 tots is a little extravagant and I will not be doing that again. The server was great, patient and very accommodating. Would go back on her service alone. Have fun.

Great ambiance. Love the place. Too bad food isn’t so great. Truffle fries- delish. Brussels sprouts not so great. I love Brussels sprouts but this was disappointing. Ordered steak sandwich, was sweet. Steak was subpar. Couldn’t even finish it all. Daughter got waffles., fine. Son got impossible breakfast sandwich., and husband got sandwich.. we were all starving and all didn’t finish our food. Our waitress was friendly and wonderful.

Very disappointed that the Buffalo Wings and Beef Sliders were no longer on the menu. The Bulgolgi Beef Empenadas (sp?) had too much dough and not enough filling. The other items selected were delicious! Service was great; chairs not so much!

We'll be back!
