In the past we were not happy with this restaurant. We tried it again tonight. It was a good experience. The table guacamole was good. Service was good. Ribs with a Texas rub were good. Chili was good as usual.

This is your average bar and grill. As a family everywhere we visit or eat while on the road we're pretty loyal customers. This one is not up to standards. And if you're a woman Avoid the restroom. Every time ive come here in the past 2 weeks ive been let down.

This Chili's location is right on the Seawall facing the ocean. When it first opened it was really slow, but it has gotten much, much better over the past few years. I've only been for lunch, as it's pretty close to my work. The lunch specials are great. They have a big selection of items and it's at most $8,... More

Went to watch the NFL playoffs, so we sat in the bar area. Very clean. Not super busy. Waiter was very attentive and brought an extra plate, since we shared a dinner. It was in a great location near the beach and on the main road. Will visit again!

The service and food were good. But when you ask 2 times to be seated in the dining room instead of the bar means to me that they really don't care about your satisfaction. Hostess action poor. Everything else good.
