Big portions of mainstream American fare, served up in a convivial, family atmosphere..
A low-key, friendly environment attracts plenty of families to this reliable chain. Kids in the big booths--often clutching free balloons and crayons--usually outnumber adults sitting at the bar. The menu offers filling American fare with no surprises, from mozzarella sticks and nachos to rollups and burgers. Entrees include steaks, fajitas and main dish salads. The calorie-conscious can select from a list of Weight Watchers-inspired dishes like mesquite chicken salad and grilled tilapia with mango salsa.
Service problems. The last time we were here - for a late lunch, we sat at a table in the bar area close to the hostess stand. Evidently the new schedule had just come out as it seems like most of the employees were more interested in finding out when they were supposed to work than actually working. You could overhear the employees discussing their schedules and who they had to work with - at least two of them went over to the manager to complain - I couldn't tell what they were saying, but they didn't look happy. We had 3 different people refill drinks and serve food - there were only two of us and we had an appetizer, soup, and sandwiches. BTW, skip the French Onion soup - it definately has a fakey taste to it --like the minced onions on a McD's basic cheeseburger.
