As always the salmon was excellent and the vegetables were prepared to my liking. This is one of my very favorite go to dining establishments for every day dining and/or special occasions.

My husband and I have been here quite a few times and always had great service and food. However, this time around, on V-Day, we were not impressed with the honey mustard wings-they were dry and the cream of chicken with rice soup was okay, not enough flavor. Our marinated skirt steak was delicious, as always! thank goodness for that. The server came around as we had food in our mouths, but unable to find when we needed her and it was NOT busy for Valentines Day as we thought it would be.

Too bad there is not better exposure. Food is always great but variety. One of our favorites.

Thursday is their "Fall off the Bone" BBQ Baby Back Ribs day. BBQ Ribs were excellent. My friend had the Tuna Steak sandwich medium rare and he said it was fantastic. Service was very good. It is very quiet at lunch time and that makes it a good place for business lunch meetings.

I noted in the reservation that it was for a birthday. When we were done eating I mentioned to the waitress that it was my friends birthday I asked if they offered any dessert. She said yes ice cream only. Then she said oh you could have gotten 20% off if I mentioned it and had the coupon that was emailed to me with the confirmation. I told her no coupon was on the email and so needless to say I guess making a note that it was for a birthday did no good.

Food was ok but over priced for what it was. Lots of bar food, hamburgers, etc. Did have a couple steaks and prime rib available at steak house prices but this is seriously just a bar with some booth seating. Decent beer selection but our flight was mislabeled so we ended up ordering the wrong full size glass. When we mentioned it, it was just brushed off by the server. Not likely to return as there are other better places in the area.

Dinner was fine, service was fine...but somehow, there's nothing special about this place. There was a decent crowd, our server was friendly and efficient, and there was nothing "wrong" with our food.

Yet I somehow felt the food was more "assembled" than cooked. I think we could re-create our meals out of the GFS Food Service freezer section---gravy out of a mix, guacamole from a container.

There was a nice selection of beers available, and the atmosphere was nice, hence there's no reason for a bad review. I'm just not sure there's much reason to go back.

Lunch was good and they were flexible on my reservation as we were 20 minutes late. Lots of space so easy to get a table at lunch. Lots of choices on the menu. Everything was good though not great, and I will come back.

Plentiful servings of goodness! Lots of creative options from small plates to large entrees. Great beers on tap and friendly, attentive service make for an enjoyable dining experience.

I found this restaurant to be cozy and warm with a nice bar. The wait staff was attentive without being obtrusive. The food was average. We had the Southwest Eggrolls and the mini burgers. The sauce for the eggrolls was somewhat bland, but the egg rolls themselves were tasty. The mini burgers were nothing special. There was a sparse spread of sauce on them with a pickle skewered on top. We skipped dessert and had tea and coffee. The only tea they had was Lipton’s. That’s fine, but, step it up a knotch.
Lastly, we were in a both, which we wanted, but, the distance between the seat and table is a bit too much for a shorter person. I had to put my coat behind me and ended leaning forward, which ended up killing my back.
Would I return, yes. The menu looked good. Hopefully, the next time will be better.

Nice ambiance. Good food, great service. Hamburgers were very good as well as jerk chicken salad.
