She gave great advice on food choices. Our second server was Brittany and she was awesome. We had a party of 15 and it never... More

Waited an hour and a half to sit down and waited an other 40 minutes for our food. My brothers steak was so dry and over cooked. It was so loud you couldn't hear your self think. Would not recommend going here!

I didn't understand why my daughter could sit at the bar and not outdoors! I had to ask for service, they were not busy at all. Food was good. Pretty much it's the atmosphere that is pretty cool.
