A retreat just outside the city

Been here three times, all in warmer weather where the outside seating feels like being on vacation. Just a fun place to relax with a beer and friends. The food is typical fare found in most casual restaurants and I can't say any of the meals I've had rated in the outstanding category. For me... read more

This is a place to eat outside but service and food is just ok. Atmosphere ok. Would probably go elsewhere.

Beautiful place. Average small portioned food. Service poor and extremely slow. Go for the night life. Stay away from the restaurant experience.

We went to celebrate a birthday. Got there later. Was very crowded. Had to park far, no lights in the back parking lot. Outside wait for a table one hour 45 minutes. No inside wait so we ate inside. Food was good prices a little high for a burger. Main courses were pretty expensive. Drinks were reasonably priced outside, fun... More

Waitress VERY RUDE, mixed up order. Never did get it right. Ended up eating something we did not order. After the 4th try it was just easier. No compensation for a horrible experience. WAITRESS ENDED up throwing check at us.

We were here several times . You do need reservations. Food was great and the outdoor atmosphere is great. Very clean and the wait staff are prompt and friendly. Never had a bad meal here.

We have been there twice now and love the food and the outdoor dinning. The staff is attentive. It is a little far for us to go, so we do not go as much as we like.

Have been here severs times. It is a great bar and a very popular place to be. However expect a long wait for your food and not much of it. It seems to me that your paying for atmosphere here. I'm a pretty big foodie and amazing atmosphere alone doesn't do it for me. Great bar but a below average... More
