Really nice staff!

Our bartender was really nice. We went in late night for drinks. They are not cheap, but the drinks are good. Everyone was having a great time dancing. the band is wonderful! We had a good time there.

My husband wanted steaks and when I searched on tripadvisor this restaurant came up and the reviews looked good. I... More

Crowd tends to be over 40 and the bands cater to the oldies. Yaaaaaaah! Large wooden dance floor --but if you want to eat or have a more quiet evenning, you... More

I showed up for a meet up on Sunday evening at O&T and what a great time! We played games, ate great good, then had a free dance class with a great DJ and dancing afterwards. What a great way to wind down the weekend!

I get to the O/T at least once a week. The staff is always friendly and they hustle to serve as best they can. It's a tough job and I appreciate their effort. Favorite food: Heat Seeker Shrimp (the only place I can find it!) and Philly Cheese Sandwich. Consistently excellent! And the house chips and string onions are my... More

We were having a great time. Settled into one of their lovely couch seating areas enjoying drinks and food (the tuna-tini is very nice) while watching Seattle vs. Green Bay. Third quarter, a group of older women came in. They announce they will be playing Pictionary where we are sitting, set up their stuff and tell us we need to... More

Nine of us visited here on a Saturday night recommended by one of the musicians who play there on the nights they have live music. We were greeted by a very cheerful waitress named Brandi. Brandi gave us great service throughout our stay. We arrived about 7:30PM. Live music began at 8PM and lasted until 11PM. The three piece jazz... More
