This is a laidback spot,where everyone and everything is top shelf,which means everything from the salad to the burgers or prime ribs are all Professionally prepared.If your looking for good food and a friendly staff,then you need not look any farther.

Upon arrival there was no one to greet us (7:30ish) yet people were wandering around and the business was not crowded or unusually busy. A hostess approached, apologized and quickly seated us. Our server was prompt and gracious. She answered our questions and took our order. I had... More

So we go tot he bar and grabbed a drink. There was one bartender for a huge bar and everyone at the bar sounded upset and was thirsty.... More

We tried this place in spite of some negative comments about service. The food was great, and our server, "Mannie" was terrific. We left her a nice tip We will definitely come back on our next trip through Columbia

We are here on a Friday night and the wait was about 45 minutes so I would recommend calling ahead. The food came in a decent time with it being a full house. We enjoyed the steak nachos as an appetizer. The Salmon was very good and well seasoned. Me and my wife order an entree salad and we both... More

Very attentive staff, and varied menu. I am guessing that the menu is basically prepared at corporate headquarters like many chain restaurants, but the dishes were well prepared and served by attentive and friendly wait staff. It was not "fine dining" experience but certainly acceptable. I would go back.
