Because of this fish and fries were “soggy”. Service was ok. Didn’t complain, waiter may have fixed it. Will probably not go back.

I had early reservation but no table ready and was seated in crappy area right by the kitchen where staff stopped to congregate with their butts in our faces. Food was okay, server was all right, experience was poor. I did respond to company's email and was promised comp cards in the mail.

The stuffed mushrooms were way over breaded with some places being 1/4 to 1/2” thick. I felt I threw out most of the portion just due to thick breading. The cordon blu was tasty but not assembled in a traditional stuffed manner. The waitress was simply straight forward with little to no friendliness or smile. Didn’t seem to enjoy being there or having to wait on us. Perhaps had the New Years party or lack of one on her mind. I had the ribs which were cooked fine but flavorless and had to ask the floor manager for barbecue sauce. She was also advised of the thick breading and was attentive and appreciative of the comment.

Our fried pickles were so salty we couldn't eat them, my husband steak which was suppose to be medium was rare and my chicken was over cooked. I think this was a fluke like I said the food is normally wonderful and this is the only time I've had less then great. I will continue to go back.

The chicken looked like they opened a can of mushrooms dumped it on and covered it with cheese... my dinner buddy had the fish... DONT BOTHER! Dry nasty. They need to step up the game at this location. I dont see it lasting much longer as not only was the food sub par but the yard and bushes around the place need help. Should have left at that sign! I am disappointed in this place

However, this time I didn't thing the tenderloin sandwich was as good as usual. It had a fishy taste, almost like old oil had been used, and I don't like seafood. Other than that, our visit was pleasant.

We understand staffing is an issue everywhere . We are usually very understanding. We had a reservation. After waiting 15 min , we sat and ordered. The food took 1 hour and 20 min to get an order of wings , 2 half salads, and a sandwich with fries . The salads chicken was cold . The wings were half the size of what we normally get and the waitress told us the product was different as they couldn’t get the same product in . The problem was the price was the same and they didn’t even think to add a few extra not to mention the product was a much less quality wing. Overall the meal was not worth the price nor the time it took to get it . Very disappointing
