We are regulars here and have a good time. The food is pretty good, but the service on the weekends is pretty slow.

Stopped in a week ago when in town for one of the Big 3. Average food and stuck up servers and bartenders. When your phone and purse/smoke is more important the your customers...it is best you stop acting like bartending is a "career". If you are not a regular here...they do not care.

A little too loud but it was Sunday Football. A lot of TVs for watching whatever sporting event you want to watch. I had the Jambalaya and my husband had a pasta dish both were very tasty and ample is portion size. They also had decent bar specials going on too. I would go back again.

Whether its a sports night, or just a dinning out night, this is the place. Great atmosphere, wonderful wait staff, great food at respectable prices. Being not far from the house, a favorite place to meet up with friends or dine with the family.
