My business associate and I tried this restaurant since it was in walking distance from our hotel and others hotel guests were raving about it. Not a bad choice! We started out with the Cajun shrimp appetizer which was quite tasty. I had the baby back rib and catfish combo which was really good. The ribs were meaty and tender... More

Good food, ok service. Night crowd geared towards the young folks. with the evening scene being geared towards the younger crowd, you see a lot of drunk kids.

The place was nice. We were able to get a table even with a late reservation. Staff were friendly, two managers stopped by our table on separate occassion to inquire about everything. Unfortunately, we weren't really wowed by the food. I ordered two kinds of meat and couldn't distinguish one from the other in terms of taste and flavour. Portions... More

I'm glad you were happy with the service and the decor, but I'm sorry you were disappointed in your meal. We don't often hear feedback like this, so I wish you'd let a server know so we could have made things right. It would have been no trouble at all. Still, I hope you'll be back again sometime so we... More

Lovely place if you are a meat lover. I had a huge rack of ribs, my wife had prime rib, both done to perfection. Well priced menu, good attentive service, could not fault it at all.

Have driven by this restaurant for years and just assumed it was another standard restaurant and lounge. Ate here at the recommendation of a friend and was not disappointed. Loved the atmosphere - inviting, with warm tones and a relaxing, but upscale feel. The waiter was pleasant and helpful and always ready to help. The food was delicious - everything... More

Simply great atmosphere, service and food. We dropped in on a busy evening, the place looked full, however got a table after just a few mins in the bar. Tried shrimps, rib and steak. All good, spicy, juicy and well cooked. Will return!
