We ate at a Korean restaurant earlier and were hungry after our night out. The dry ribs are awesome and the avocado dip with toasted bread was so fresh and crispy. Bang on, never change. A bit noisy being a Friday night. I saw a...More

The food here is consistently tasty! I shared the ribs and they were fall off the bone delicious. The sauce they use perfect in my opinion.

Pretty typical Earls. They have it down to a formula, and the nice ambience, good food and variety of drinks are all par for course. There’s nothing that stands out here, but nothing bad either - you get a predictable and stable experience.

After a busy afternoon shopping, we stopped in for a snack before going home. They had Happy Hour so we had some delicious appetizers with wine and beer. The atmosphere was very relaxing, quiet and cozy.
