Food usually good with prompt attention. Can take a while for the food to arrive so have time. Been to this chain in many cities and they are similar. Outdoor patios, where available, add to the fun,

A nice casual restaurant right downtown. The menu has a good selection and the prices are mid range. Service is fast and friendly. A good place for a drink and snack after work. It's usually busy and a little loud.
