We ended up having a total of 53 people. It couldn't have been any better. We all had such a wonderful time. Serves was fantastic and the food... More

I came here with my family and friends for my 21st birthday, and I'm so happy I made the choice! The food was great and with around 20 people in my party it also came out faster than we expected it would. Also, you can't go wrong with the extravagant beer and mixed drink selection. I had one of their... More

The wait staff was very attentive. Drinks and food came out quickly. The burgers were amazing. Make sure you get the sweet fries, the dipping sauce is fantastic!

My husband loves burgers, as does the teenage kid we mentor, so we decided to go here for some burgers... we never would have taken our teenage friend who we are trying to influence positively to a hooters'ish restaurant for a burger if we had known better. I think the food was good but I was distracted thinking about what... More
