My family loves Spaghetti Works. The food is good, and I like it that most entrees come with salad bar. It is a good value. Mondays are free kids night, so that is a hit as well.

Spaghetti Works is a fantastic place to take the family. The menu items are mostly pasta (hence the name) but you can choose your noodles and your sauce. The beer and cheese is great, as is the puttanesca. I'd recommend going half and half on the sauces so you get a variety.
It's a bit loud and boisterous, but that's okay because your kids will blend right in with the din. The prices are inexpensive and sometimes they are in the Entertainment Book to make it even more inexpensive.
A great salad bar, fast service, and fun atmosphere.

PROS: Kid Friendly, good staff, cheap prices
CONS: A bit loud, can get crowded on weeknights after work.

We had no food, since the drinks were appalling and hygiene appeared to be a problem here. Our mixed drinks (2 of 3 in our group) had neither fresh nor correct ingredients, and when one was sent back, our waiter explained that the bartender was mad at him and had poured the drink back in the blender. There are a number of problems with this--hygiene being the most concerning, but also poor staff preparing drinks, and the incompetence of the wait staff. To make matters worse, it took a few minutes to explain to the waiter and the manager why these issues bothered us. We did not feel like trusting our meal preparation to such a poorly run establishment, and will not never go back.

Cons: poor hygiene, improper drink prep, incompetent staff/mgr
