Generally good food. I always got the Mahi Mahi fish tacos, but they recently changed it to just fish tacos and they now use a cheaper fish, which is inferior and does not taste nearly as good as the Mahi Mahi that everyone liked. Very...More

An enjoyable place to meet up with friends for lunch, happy hour, dinner, etc. Most locations have outside seating as well. The food is above average with pretty large portions. If you have little girls, the Easton location provides special chairs for their American Girl...More

Average American style food; wait times often long despite not being crowded; food not always hot when brought to the table. Wait staff do not seem to enjoy their job. There are better options for similar food in the area.
