    The fall-off-the-bone ribs are a bit pricey ($28 for the full rack), but the rack is as big or bigger than any other I’ve seen in town and the included house cornbread is really, really good.
  • John J.
    The atmosphere here is a bit dim and moody , but has a pretty diverse menu. I would recommend the buffalo chicken rolls, Sunday night pasta (available upon request) and the warm butter cake. Yum!!

    This restaurant is amazing. The decor is beautiful. The staff is very friendly. Very short wait time. The food is really good. Try the lemon chicken paccata. (I think that's how you spell it.)

    The Indonesian chicken and shrimp curry is not bad! Don't expect this dish to bring the spice. Ask your waitperson to crank it up with Cajun spices for a "fusion" treat!

    Go here with my bf maybe every other month bc he loves it. Big menu like sister restaurant The Cheese Cake Factory. The small plates and appetizers are pretty good everything else is hit or miss.

    This place is so nice ! It's a sister of the cheese cake factory absolutely better food though at a fair price you get your $$ worth.. Try Shrimp Scampi it's not your ordinary one.

    Fun to take out of towners to this place of excess. The variety of dishes makes the ordering process an experience all on it's own. Even something "ordinary" like a burger... Try the Max Burger :)

    Just because it looks fancy doesn't mean it's expensive. This place is great for lunch. Get the grilled salmon. Waiting and parking issues are commonplace. This place is owned by Cheesecake Factory.
