“Awful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

The menus were sticky/dirty. Table was rickety. Waitress was clueless. Wine ordered from wine list was not available. Substitute wine was good but not served properly. Soup special was awful. After waiting thirty minutes for entrees, we paid for the wine and left. This is a terrible restaurant, and we will not be back.

“Needs new staff”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

I felt completely invisible because i waited FOREVER to be seated.....the staff kept walking by me but no one even stopped to say ....some one will be with you or NOTHING....they need a BIG dose of Willy from the food network show .....restaurant stakeout......I had to get up and walk over to the bar and get my own refill of coffee.....the staff seemed out of orbit....sad because the food is pretty good....

“Very dead restaurant, no help, and slow service.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012 via mobile

We walked in and nobody was there. Another family came in and one poor waiter was working. He had to cover our two tables, the bar, and whatever else. One cook who was slow, took over 1/2 hr to get food to our table. Some bossy middle eastern male was barking orders, eating fries out of a bowl, and should've been helping if he was the manager.

When the food finally arrived the hamburger was charred, the meatloaf was horrible, and everything had to much seasoning to over compensate for the terrible food.

Will NEVER come here again, can't believe it is even in business anymore. Should've known better when every time we are downtown this place is dead and their website is shut down!

Don't be tricked into their groupon!
