Restrooms: 2 stars - The restroom floors were so slippery I was concerned that my daughter would fall. I brought this to the managers attention immediately and he had an associate come in as I was helping my daughter was her hands. The associate did mention that this happens a lot when the stall walls are cleaned. However.. if I didn't have a fear of falling the bathrooms were very clean. This issue was in the men's and ladies room (men's room report came from my son).
Kid Friendly rating: 5 stars - This is one of my children's favorite restaurants. They love the steak fries, kids spaghetti (we ask them to split it so the kids can share), freckled lemonade, balloons, and cartoons on at least half of the TVs in the restaurant.
