“FUN place for drinks and dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

We originally went in just for drinks and appetizers, but the menu persuaded us to stay for dinner as well! Everything was amazing and the drink selection was endless! We ended up staying late after dinner, as the restaurant has a DJ starting at 10pm (and live music on some days we were told). We had a great time, the staff was really fun and friendly, we will definitely be coming back next time we are in town! So glad that we discovered this place!!

“very good, expensive but well worth the money. It was just too crowded!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

Loved the Martini and loved the dinner - fantastic for that!....on a Sat night however it got a bit too busy and was over crowded. We had a table but we continuously had people leaning over us to throw their jackets in the corner or behind our seats - insane!

“Don't bother. Save your money.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

Wow, what a disappointment.

The online system for booking doesn't work -- only you won't know that. So it's best to phone to book.

The place is really loud. More of a bar than a restaurant.

The service is alright, but nothing special.

The food was really not great. They start you off with, wait for it, nothing! No water, no bread, no nothing.

The drinks are very, very expensive.

There is food on the menu that they no longer offer. Apparently it's been like that for a while. I suggest updating your menus!

The dessert was old and dry.

Just don't bother. There are lots of other choices and for less cash.

“Just lookin' for a good time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2011

My husband and I went to this bar for a few drinks and to meet up with relatives while in the area. I asked the waitress what was in their long island ice teas and she told me everything but the cokeacola, and that's the one thing I didn't want in my long island so I ordered one, when she brought it and I told her that I had asked b/c I didn't want coke she said 'Oh let me check if I can return it" and then came back and said she could and they would make a new one with just lime juice and I wouldn't be charged for the first one. That was fine, accept the second one without the coke tasted awful, it was like a sour lemonade. Gross. I also ordered the punpkin-pie martini later on and it was just okay, in fact I wouldn't order it again.
