Went here with family and it was a bit disappointing. The other family we were with had been there several times before and they were disappointed. Food was basically bland and nondescript. Gut Fieri sold this 10 months ago. Owner did a big menu change 5 months ago -- guess he thought he could improve on Guy Fieris cooking (ha!).... More

First, the positives: restaurant was clean, we were seated quickly, the beer was cold, and the server was very good and attentive. Now, the not so good (bad): 1. My son ordered meatloaf with garlic mash. The potatoes were Luke warm at best. The meatloaf was way too sweet and sugary. 2. My daughter ordered cajun chicken pasta. It was... More

A lousy experience from start to finish. The food was bad. My fish was described as a "big plate" and having a Jalapeno Apricot glaze. What arrived was a small, over cooked piece of fish with little to no flavor. Certainly no Jalapeno. My date's meatloaf was equally small and under seasoned. The service was slow and the room was...

The food was very good. Lots of variety on the menu. The restaurant was clean and the service was quick. It is a little on the higher end for casual dining but worth it.

Went for lunch after a busy morning. The food was fantastic, service was on the spot, and the atmosphere was wonderful.

My family and I visited for lunch. My wife had the wagyu street tacos. Very well seasoned, great balance of flavors, however, the steak was overcooked and dry. I had the bison meatloaf. It was divine. Excellent taste. Amazing sauce and cooked to perfection. It was accompanied by a kale ceased salad- also very good. -Blogger AM21

I wanted a hearty lunch (no time for breakfast, and dinner wasn't going to be until 7:30), so I ordered a "big plate" of bacon-wrapped shrimp. There were only four small shrimp on a sea of grits, topped with onion rings (not advertised on the menu, and I don't eat onions). The shrimp were tasty, the grits only so-so, but... More

Was very impressed that this place had a separate gluten free menu. The restaurant was not very busy for a week night and the server was friendly. Food came quickly and was very tasty. Will definitely return.

Waiter was very good but the food was overpriced for what we got. My kids ate off trays that looked like TV dinners. Seemed funny for a restaurant. I had the fish and chips. I received 2 small pieces of fish and a half piece that was cut or ripped in half. I asked why I had a half piece... More
