To have a place where you can have a fire, a bottle of wine, good music and amazing food...what more could you ask for. The staff make you feel like one of the family. The nachos are sooooooo good. So good.

don't expect fine dining, but the food is tasty, cocktails tasty, and the vibe is fun. between old school hip hop playing through the speakers, to a live afro-jazz type band - how could you not have fun!
