“Fun, noisy, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

We have eaten there several times. The prime beef sliders are great, the burgers are great, actually most things are great (wasn't impressed with their steak, liked the salmon, salads, the french fries are ENORMOUS) The place does a good business. Have been there with kids, clients and friends. The waiters are great. Getting your food can take a while but all in all, it is a good option if you are on the Prominade.

“Great for sharing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

This place has a very cool, low light comfy vibe and a great menu. Most of their food is small plates but large enough portions to share. There were 4 of us. We each ordered 2-3 plates and shared everything. We were stuffed by the end. Our favorites were the bacon-wrapped dates and the ribs. The beet salad was the most disappointing but it wasn't bad. Overall a great experience. It's not cheap but was reasonable considering our gluttony. With drinks it was about $40 per person. I would definitely recommend this especially to those who like to try a lot of different things.

“Great Food!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012 via mobile

Gave this place a try based on other reviews. Great Food! Lobster sliders, Brussels sprouts salad both awesome. And good happy hour too! Service was good not great but the food more than made up for it. Will go back next time to Santa Monica.

“The bar is excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

This review is for the bar only. The bartender are very friendly, knowledgable and give big pours. They knew how to make some old lesser known drinks like the ramos fizz and sazerac cocktail! We did order an appetizer, baked goat cheese + san marzano tomato gravy, garlic toast that was very good. We were there during happy hour so the prices were great!
