Hey i just wanted to get feedback on the restaurant, i know that it was a rough start, but was the food good? how about service? is there anything that anyone would suggest. please also take in to consideration that it was the 1st day. so i am asking personally but i think if we give it a week things will come together. also it was to be closed on sundays,but i am thinking it would be great to be open on sundays for lunch.what does everyone think? thank you!

We haven't been yet, but will give it a try soon... you guys should hand out some coupons to get people to come in.... maybe free appetizer with purchase of a meal or something? ;)

We do offer the free salad and bread,but that is a great suggestion! ty so much for feed back i think you will like the food i love it, and i believe that the food is priced very good for the portions you get. as far as competition.i would suggest the salmon and the steaks we have so much different kinds of food but i hope everyone likes it. i expect some kind of negative because it is new and we are all trying very hard to do right not only for ourselves but for something new to this town. and just so everyone knows i am nt the owner...i am just a waitress and trying to help the business out by getting feedback.thank you all.

Im glad we have another choice. I like the food at most of the other places but I struggle with some of the owner/staff of some being semi-rude. Not saying who but some are just mean. Good luck and thanks for being here.

If the food is good and you treat each customer like they are important, then you will succeed. Play Frank Sinatra. Best of luck to your new business.

I Agree some of the girls today may have had a attitude, but i think it was based on the mess ups with the system, i apolsgize for it.i do not know who it was but let us know the girls...we do nt want something so small to come between the customer and the food or service i know we had problems with the system and the drink machine the girls working r doing the best they can and also helping the owner with things so we did the best we could.we did fix the drinks, and hopefully they wont have no more problems ,it is nt personal.... if anyone customer has a problem the owner i know will either fix it or fire the he wants this town and this place to succeed.. i will b the 1st to blame and correct the situation. my name is breahna i hope people come in and ask for me but there is 10 waitress's per shift so we are all fighting for tips n feed bk. so even id say go ahead tell me the the situation.truth.....because we can not make it better if we do nt know the truth,so please if you hve ate here and feel or think something let us know ok. i may nt hve my boss's approval of this but i feel like this town has only this site....and news..so i gotta know.it is my only so i want the best for it...ty so much even for negitive because we are new nt new owners but new....so we are trying please b patient and help us grow....breahna!

Also i think the neowalla? i hope spelled right will help...so the coupon idea was so cool i am gonna tell the owner so maybe we get that out. i know this site,,,,,,,i have seen negative and positive for places and i just want the best..even if i do nt work here i want something new here that is good, and i have tried the food it is good. i think if the owner is putting out orders at his own cost he must b doing something right, right?..... i mean this town has not alot of options and we all want that.. so as someone that has come from a big town to small i know why i wanted this town....for children for school; for a life... and although it has few jobs,this town is great! we love it but the food and shopping needs more, so if you got something to say..let it be real so we as a business can make it better thank you so much.....breahna

If you were responding to my earlier post, I was only making a statement. I haven't ate there yet. Take a deep breath. Everything will be fine.

We ate there last night. The food was good. There were not enough waitstaff and they were just overwhelmed. Customers didn't have time to wait due to majority of them were going to the Neewollah play. However we had plenty of time to wait and we finally got our food. Our waitress was doing her best but seemed to be loaded down with TOO much to do. There was a young man who came to our table several times and each time we made a request, he responded to it quickly. I believe in time, they will get a routine established and we will definitely go back. Wish them the best of luck.

Went there last night, thought it was ok. Lots of tables not enough chairs. Maybe setup a reservation system. Need to move some tables. One table was next to kitchen door so waitstaff would trip over customer every time they left the kitchen. Our waitress was new to food service, with time she will relax some and get the hang of it. Food was good but not great. Are the noodles made there?

So where is this new restaurant? Would like to try it out. By the way, we ate at the Vintage Steakhouse Wednesday night with some out of town visitors and the food and service was excellent. Our company said their steaks (rib eyes) were absolutely delicious. So, if out-of-towners liked it (from Miami, FL) you know it must be pretty good.

Went twice & could NOT get pizza because there oven isn't cooking right or whatever. Bad layout inside. Too small. Never liked the inside. Doubt I'd go back... To Me they opened too soon.
agree with too soon

Went tonight to the Italian Garden and was not overly impressed. I fell the dinner prices are a little too high and also could not get pizza for some reason. I think the restaurant should not have opened until it was totally ready to open. I will probally give it another try, I try not to judge a establishment on its first few days. Also had to ask for out charge card back and was told they were having some problems with their machine. Kind of made me feel uncomfortable,
want to try for my self
