Bar / Restaurant with great live music and a good menu. How well I remember in addition to standard American cuisine, steaks, etc. Italian cuisine was served spaghetti, pizza and fresh Tuna and other fish. The restaurant has a great atmosphere every night is karaoke. Prices here is acceptable although a little more expensive than other restaurants in town;)
