Tonight I had the Thursday night feature which is boneless short ribs served with mashed potatoes and vegetables. I usually have a fillet when we go here but went with the short ribs tonight. I highly recommend you give them a try. They were tender and tasty. My wife had the fillet trio which she almost always has and it was delicious as usual. Of course we had the wildfire shop salad to begin with and some chocolate peanut butter pie to go. Our server tonight was Joe. We had not had Joe as a server in the past but he was fantastic. All around a 10/10.

The food is consistently good. We love the chicken marsala but find it is a must to get the mash potatoes instead of the pasta. Get some asparagus and you are set. The walnut gorgonzola salad is my wife's favorite and the martinis hit the spot. I don't care for their marina but that is probably personal preference. Plenty of other good stuff for me.

We were there to celebrate a birthday and he made it very special with a free token to the photo booth and a free brownie. The food was heavenly!! Between burgers, chicken sandwiches, Mac n cheese, and various side dishes, each element was exemplary. We can’t wait to come back again!

Exceptional Dining Experience!!! I was celebrating a friend's Birthday and everything was fantastic! We started with the Cava Rose' - what a perfect way to toast her Birthday! Light, crisp, strawberries, bubbly - just wonderful. I tried the roasted cauliflower starter for the first time - OMG - every single bite was DELICIOUS! What a masterful creation. I'll be getting that every time now!! We both got the salmon - wow - they do fresh seafood so well - cooked to perfection, tender like butter, seasoned perfectly. We finished off with their famous Orange Caramel Cake... if you haven't had this, you need to come try it! We both agreed it's the best dessert around and our favorite dessert ever!! A special thank you to Robert for the exceptional service throughout our lingering 3 hour lunch! He spoiled us with beverage refills, attentiveness, and lovely conversation. Another exceptional experience at Cravings!!
