We were anxious to eat that night and only had to wait about 10 minutes to get rated but took sooooo long to get waited on and then to get served... almost 40 minutes ... and they weren't that busy. Then it was not easy to get back to our motel as it is in a very "strange " rather... More

Went about 1:30pm for lunch which was a great time as the lunchtime crowd had already left. I walked in the door and was seated right away and waited upon simultaneously. Received my ice tea and my shrimp and fries meal ($9.00) was delivered within ten minutes. The food was good but I must say that was the smallest amount... More

My family and I ate at this restaurant tonight. What a big mistake. Our server ignored us, and we went without drink refills for most of our meal. Ordered unlimited apps, and it was a mistake as well. Took forever to get refills, and ended up leaving after only three sets. Very disappointed

I felt like I went back in time. Sat at the bar. We were handed menus that were falling apart so we decided just to have a couple of drinks. Draft beer didn't taste very fresh. If you are staying nearby maybe an option instead of driving in Mission Valley

We went at happy hour when certain appetizers were half price. Got good recommendations from our server. Had the green beans and the chicken sliders? not sure of name...chicken was spicy and I liked the fried green beans.

The food was good, except the part which the waiter got wrong. If you are going to take orders without writing the details down, then you risk disappointing your customers and forfeiting tips....

A colleague and I stopped by for a quick bite before a meeting. The place was near empty and all we wanted were a couple of drinks and appetizers. Once our was order was placed, we seemed to no longer exist. Others who came after us received their meals while we sat waiting. We flagged down our server to inquire... More

Stopped in for lunch on a Thursday. Ordered drinks and two appetizers to share. The drinks came very quickly, however it took more than 45 minutes to get the two simple appetizers which we had ordered. In the meantime, parties that were seated much after we arrived were served full steak meals as we were continually bypassed by our waitress.... More

TGIFs across the country closed down when the economy got bad. All the restaurants near where I live shut their doors years ago. I noticed recently a lot of TGIF commercials and ads...maybe they're trying to revive the business! Well, in SD for a convention I saw this restaurant and just had to stop in for a snack and a...
