Competent and consistent, but nothing special at this chain restaurant. Service was very good. Beer and wine selection is pretty awful.

Always a good restaurant. Of course the cheddar bay biscuits are to die for!!! Whether you get shrimp or fish entree they have always been good. Coconut shrimp with the pina colada sauce is my favorite.

The food is always great here but their water tastes horrible. Parking is lacking and on this last trip we kind of felt our waitress was rushing us out, trying to give us our check before we were done eating and we even shared meals...More
