Game trip

The menu has changed since my last visit with some improvement, but still a formulaic restaurant. My chicken with maple bacon needed a little more flavoring.

I can see why this restaurant is in trouble. The service was worse than bad and the food was okay. I put in a dessert order using their automatic system and it went to a black hole. It is a social time for the staff. I won't be back.

Menu has changed completely, for the better. Small appetizers offered free, as examples of their new food. Good, tasty, inexpensive food.

Came here awhile back and the service was sub par. This time the service improved. I much prefer to be seated at the high tables vs the booths. This place is ideal for sports enthusiasts – bar with multiple flat screen TVs. We placed our order of: Boneless Wings, Bourbon Street Chicken & Shrimp and Chicken Tenders Basket. Our food... More

There was three of us tonight. The dining room was not packed. A nice wait person greeted us right away and pleasantly took out order. Then we were served 2 or the 3 meals. Then it took 15min to get the last meal. The food was pretty good, but it was a little disjointed getting the last meal so late.
