...the manager Alice has no customer service experience..


...She is not friendly and obviously doesnt have good customer service skills. I hope she gets the feedback to be a better server and I never want to have her as my server again. We had spent almost 100 even with a tip and she didnt deserve this but we still tipped her...

...Her reply was the staff was moving around and they were confortible . My husband asked her to look around and see that everyone in the dinning room had jackets on and the couple next to us had even hats on. I’m not concerned with the staff , be concerned about the paying customer..


...Your entrees are delicious as well! Your staff is very nice to me and my family, they are always asking if we need something-which is not annoying for me at all, especially when you have children that are making a mess at the table or dropping their spoons..

Reviewer's quote

...They belittle their employees at that location in Dunwoody, Georgia. On top of molded food in the walk in including lemons, cheese, and bread, there are roaches everywhere. There are roaches in the soda machine as well as molded unclean soda nobs...


...New Tampa location. It irritates me every time that commercial is aired - complete misrepresentation of what is being served in New Tampa. No acknowledgment that what I was served was inaccurate - won't be back...
