We keep going back as there is very few choices in the Ellenton/Parrish area. The biggest complaint is the terrible wait staff. Hostess's do not smile, act as if they are doing you a favor by seating you. Once seated, waiter/waitress take your drink order at their convenience. Once the food order is placed and the food arrives..IT IS AUCTION TIME...who gets the burger...who gets the chicken, etc. They never come back for refills of drinks and it takes 10 to 15 minutes to find the waiter to get the check (he is serving tables on the other side of the restaurant! And all this for VERY inconsistant food. In 4 years of trying this place NEVER HAS A MANAGER WALKED UP TO THE TABLE AND ASKED ONE QUESTION!

Great choices-2 entrees and 2 salads for $20. The salad was huge and had fresh ingredients. The chicken entree however, was rubbery and watery. It tasted like it had been frozen.
You get what you pay for!

The restaurant was very, very cold. The waiter said it is always like that. People all around me were complaining. I had a fleece but it didn't stop me getting chilled to the bone. The blowing cold air chilled my food too fast. Food was okay, service a little slow. Next time I'll go somewhere else so I can be comfortable.

Just had a very good burger for lunch, the onion rings had a fishy taste(change the oil!), We also had a artichoke/spinach/chicken pasta dish that was good, but not much artichoke. Each glass of wine was about 1/2 bottle! Service was great.
