The amount of stars I gave this place is purely because my taste have refined too much more elegant places.... That being said... If you're looking for a bar to hang out in with good drinks great atmosphere and very good food this is the place to go.... The crowd may be on the underside more of a college crowd... More

The food is way, way too inconsistent. One day I have great braised beef ravioli, then the next time, they screw up chicken. Maybe the real chef has a few off days. Their menu is decent, and I have had many good meals here, but again- I have had a few poor meals here that has prevented me from going... More

Love going to happy hour here. Food is tasty, the prices are reasonable, and the bar is stocked with plenty of beers and drinks. It's a nice change from the local places around. Normal prices are a bit high for my taste. Most times the bar staff is displeased that I am there for happy hour only, even though I... More

Unless you are a 20-something person looking for the opposite gender, STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE, esp. at night. I have seen bouncers on the sidewalk, and police cars making regular visits. It is OK for lunch, I enjoyed the times I went there during the day.

As another reviewer stated, this used to be a great place to eat but the food has gone way downhill. The menu is now pub type food and takes a long time to be served. I ordered the fried calamari because it used to be one of my favorites here, but what came out was clearly straight from a freezer... More

This restaurant was once a great place to drink AND eat but sadly, unlike the website menu which teases you with Atlantic Salmon, Pan Roasted Chicken and Tuna, the best that have to offer on the dinner menu is sandwiches, burgers and salads. Bottom line, it's nothing more than pub food and poor pub food at that. Skip the starters... More

This lounge/restaurant offers something for everyone. We had a large group of family and friends, many of them senior citizens. We were seated in the back where it was relatively quiet. Waitress was terrific.

This is the it place for happy hour and hangout place. I call it a meat market because it's also where meeting people happen. Their food is not bad. Their atmosphere is fun and young. Most bartenders know what they're doing.

They have a good comedy club upstairs and a hopping bar downstairs for young people on the weekends. I wouldn't go there to eat though - food is so-so.

Have been here many times. It is nice in the summer time because you can eat outside. Food is good, location is good and we have never had a bad meal or a bad time.
