I’ve been to Coastal Grill many times and I have always enjoyed it there, the food and service is top notch.

As for Lola’s, I’m sorry but I can not say that it was enjoyable, the food was only fair at best and the service was amateurish .

Gerri’s has pretty good food but the management and service leave a lot to be desired.

Another of my favorites is Cabana.  They seem to put it all together, and  the drinks ard an added plus

Went to Lola’s last week w my BF. He ordered off the restaurant week menu, I off the regular menu. My simple salad was good, portion was good. He got the kung pow calamari – it was eh..if you know what I mean. Middle of the road in taste, but the presentation was not there even a little.

For dinner I had the shell steak and he had the ‘Pork Porterhouse’. The steak was fine but it was a little overcooked. I ordered med rare – why is not so hard!! His Pork was alright. The real problem was that the vegetable were only warm and the potatoes were warm cool and hot all at the same time! Probably just scooped from a pan and not warmed before they plated the dishes.

The server honestly looked as if she wanted to be anywhere but there, and offered up no suggestions when we asked. She was kinda slow so we decided to skip desert even though it was included with my bf’s dinner.

We were surprised because we have heard good things about them. We are not 100% against trying them again , because everyone has an off night, but we wont be rushing as there are better places in town IMHO.

We went to Geri’s on rest. week. The food was good and fresh. The desserts they served were small but was just a few bites but that was just enough to satisfy. The server was rushed and would ask us questions about our meal then walk away each time before we even had a chance to answer. They could of used a busboy. We should of went to Coastal or Nicks.
