I like the place itself but there's no entertainment after dinner except the sports on the TV's. If it's a Fri or Sat you can go upstairs and dance to the D.J. but Thursdays they have nothing. They have outside tables upstairs which is an added bonus. It has gotten a little ghetto upstairs since they first opened, not sure... More

We walked from our hotel which was only 2 blocks. The atmosphere was great! They had a very friendly waitress that continually checked on us. She did her best to keep us satisfied. I ordered the fish and chips as well as a salad. I was wonderful!!!

While the reviews for this restaurant were somewhat mixed, it was very close to our hotel, and its appearance looked interesting so we thought we'd give it a try. We decided to start out with appetizer and salads before ordering further, and stopped there. Evidently, the chefs hadn't read the menu and didn't prepare what was described on either of... More

I went to this establishment for the second time last night with a friend for her birthday. I was kinda bummed when we sat down and got the same waitress who I got about 2 weeks prior. The last time we went our waitress was very inattentive. I had to ask repeatedly for another drink as did the guy I... More

We visited here bc it was kitty corner to out hotel and we were looking for somewhere different to eat. I couldn't stay for anything longer than it took for my husband to finish his beer. The service was ok but it was ridiculously loud- I had to shout over the extremely loud music, tvs and crowds to even ask... More

We have about 15 friends from all nations where we enjoyed our drinks here. As some are Asian, cocktail menu were not made available. As a frequent drinkers, everyone get their drinks. We find the bar tender could be too generous with the mix as all our Margaritas are dosed heavier than normal. The waitresses are very nice and accommodating... More

Young under 30 crowd, smelled like someone puked on the dance floor, cheeseball pop remixes, but one of the few late night spots to dance and drink at in the western burbs.

I recently took my visiting family here on a Saturday night and we all ordered burgers. I had a blue cheese burger and it was probably the best burger I have ever had. Burgers here are a whopping half pound so I took half home. The calamari we ordered was also cooked to perfection. Our waitress was attentive without being... More
