Went there for a dinner seminar. Wasn't expecting anything spectacular regarding meals. Had eaten before hand, so had dinner take out. When I got home couldn't resist trying as it smelled so good. BBQ Ribs, mashed potatoes, veggies. It was a wow!!

The food here was really quite good, but the portions are way too big. The prices are also quite high so I guess you get what you pay for, but no one at our table of 7 could finish their dishes and we all left so full even without finishing our meals. The only disappointment is the salad bar option.... More

I've never eaten here before so we decided to give it a try. I ordered chicken fried chicken. It was a large piece (mostly batter), and the batter was more like fried fish coating, but was OK. I think for the price, it's not really worth it. You get 1 trip to the salad bar, and a small side of... More

Stopped by after 9pm for appetizers and coffee drink." B-52" coffee drink so weak, could not taste any alcohol only strong coffee. Was offered shot of alcohol for additional cost.

The portions are oversize, but the quality and taste do not suffer. Getting the special combo of a 1/2 sandwich and a small side salad is the best bet. There is also the produce (salad) bar that will keep the veggie people happy. For barbecue lovers, the bbq chicken sandwich is more than adequate, and the sauce is sweet sharp... More

Nice atmosphere. Friendly staff. Good food with many choices. I believe they even have a gluten free portion of the menu.
