My friends and I hit Chapins on the north side once or twice a year. It is always crowded and loud, the food as a whole is pretty good. I have read a few reviews and there is also a sister restaurant on the south side - loud, dark and pretty much a beach bar. The food is average, but the entertainment has generally been good. If you are looking for a hopping bar and dining experience - the north side with it's outside raw bar is your pick. If you want night life and a bar with a band - you might like the south side.
