Nothing special to say about this place. Good value for a decent burger on Monday but you MUST buy a drink - whether you want it or not - to get the special

Usually enjoyable but disappontrped with cold food, slow and disorganized service and sloppy plating. Not giving up but hoping one of my go to places is not slipping into bad habits

I was there with a fairly large group of 12 for dinner on a weeknight. The atmosphere is wonderful and warm. Our server was wonderful - friendly and very attentive - we didn't wait or want for anything. The pricing was about $12 - $20 for most fare. I had the steak wrap and it was absolutely amazing! The steak... More

Friendly restaurant and the food was great. The portions were generous and we did not leave disappointed. One of my friends ordered the calamari and were very pleased. The waffles for dessert were made to order and were delicious. Great spot to catch up with friends or to have a nice dinner out with your family. I will definitely be... More

The drinks menu is quite delightful with a wide variety of hot, cold, alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverages. There is quite a range of choice in cuisine and types of dishes on the food menu. The desserts are worth the indulgence. The decor is quite tastefully done. The music is at the perfect volume to allow for good conversation or just... More

6 Adults, 2 kids and 1 baby all went to Brunch at Symposium on a Sunday for Brunch. There were a few problems but overall it was good. I called the day before to make 11:30am reservations so this large group didn't just show up and stress the staff out. The guy who handled my reservation was super sweet and... More
