Something different

Visited while in town and met up with some business associates. The restaurant is a bit different and exotic, but food and service was really no different than some of the other places in town. It is a nice meeting spot and would go again, but isn't my most favorite.

This place has changed from being the popular 20's - 30's pickup place to being more diverse in its crowd. Food is good, seems a little pricey though for what you get.

Visited for a company dinner and realized first off that their happy hour lasted till 7. Most end at 5-6pm. Good selection of import and domestic beers as well as mixed drinks. Menu is a big mix as well. Whether you want a burger or sandwiches or your in the mood for steak, they got you covered. I had the... More

This is one of the only places where you can actually get healthy happy hour appetizers! Great selection and good choice of drinks too. Go early to get a seat in the bar.

Went there with our son who was in town on business and we had dined at the Elephant Bar in Albuquerque last week and the food there was great. Not the case in Concord. My wife's medium rare sirloin was cooked well and tough, the beans were burnt and raw. My post roast meat was dry and appeared to have... More

Young wait staff is very incompetent. The place is noisy, service is slow, bar drinks are poor and overprice (even at happy hour). There is no need for the delays as the staff is standing around chatting it up among themselves. There is no training for the servers and the food is average or below. I witnessed customers walking out... More

My husband and I visited here for "date night". Which was really pointless as we couldn't speak to each other it was so noisy! The menu is limited and the service was awful. Our food was just average but it took far too long to arrive. During our time there we watched 4 different families be seated at the table... More

Too noisy for me and I don't like the idea of having to get my wine myself from the bar before I sit down for dinner to get happy hour price. After all you are going to spend more money on dinner. There are no good choices for people who have allergies. there is nothing written about it and you... More
