Had a great time! Food value is only a 7 because of the quality of the food (syrup) not the way it was cooked.

The cocktail sauce for the shrimp was frozen solid. Otherwise, everything was great! We'll be back!
Business Response:
We're sorry that happened and will correct that problem. Please do not hesitate to let your server know of any issues. This is a learning experience and the students need the input to improve thier skills for the culinary industry. We look forward to another visit.

What an incredible experience for the students! What an incredible experience for the public! (Always happy to help them learn, especially when it involves food!) Service was exceptional, menu was creative, food was tastyyyy too! Ambiance could be more personal, less sterile, but that's really getting into picky details! GREAT JOB!

The only two comments I have are: the dinner rolls were hard, not warm and soft, and the veggies were cold. Otherwise, the meal was delicious and we will definitely come again for meals and to support the school program.

Our waiter was very attentive. Food was served on a timely basis. One of my students ordered a medium steak, it was rare and bloody. My 2 students enjoyed the hors' derves and banana foster. Thank you for having us.

I love coming here! We have been twice and have been very pleased with our meals and service. My only suggestion would be to watch the utensils and glassware. Apparently, the dish washer does not do a good job and they are not checked before putting on the table. But, you guys are doing a great job! Thanks for being in Sanford.

The kids did a wonderful job. In hindsight, we should have had three tables of 3 instead of two tables of 4 and a single. I will continue to recommend to others.
Business Response:
Sorry that wasn't picked up on at our end to double check that arrangement. The students are using the information from this reservation app to set up the seating for the dining area. For others reading this, If you have a large group, please make you reservations reflect how you expect your group to be seated.

Steak was over cooked but good flavor. Ran out of crème’ dessert so had bananas foster that was excellent. Waiter Matthew was personable. Great experience, and I have reservation already for April.
