Birthday celebration

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... read more

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

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

Horrible service. Average food and high prices. Our sides and condiments for dinner onlyn showed up after repeated requests and after wr already finished the main part of the meal. Management did nothing but make excuses of being short staffed. Drinks weren't refilled, soda or alcohol. What a disappointment.

Great atmosphere, fun place to hang out and have some drinks in the warm weather. I have never been overly impressed with the food....but I don't really go there expecting a great meal. It is more about the atmosphere, being outside, having some drinks, etc. I will definitely go again (and again)....but not necessarily for dinner.
