“Tasteless food and so loud!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

The basic noise level is loud but once the not real good band started playing we couldn't hear each other talk. And we were screaming. Temps outside were in the 20's with fresh snow on the ground and the temp inside the place was very cold. And they had the ceiling fans going.
We both ordered burgers. The Classic was good- nothing special. The chipotle was tasteless. Onion strays were yummy. Sweet potato fries were room temperature when they brought them out.
Wait staff was fine but the overall visit was very disappointing.

“Skip It”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

The wife and I went here on a Friday night for drinks and a little food around 8:30pm and waited about fifteen minutes to be served at the bar. The rest of night was much of the same. Waiting and waiting to be served. When we did get service the bartender was preoccupied with conversations with waitresses. The food was sub-par and extremely salty. The only good thing was their draft selection. Wouldn't recommend this restaurant.

“Great. ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

Tried RA with a couple of friends last night, a Tuesday.

Martini selection was good. Food was delicious, especially the key lime pie. The pie was to die for. Ashley, our server, was friendly, attentive and offered great suggestions on food and drinks. She had a fun sense if humour. She earned 6 stars.

Only down side was the live band. Not sure what type on genre they were going for and they did not do it that well. We were glad when they took a break. Nevertheless, the live music would not stop us from returning (maybe just going on a different night instead).

“Knowledgeable Staff, good food, great drinks.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Always an enjoyable experience, the bartenders are solid, the waitstaff is pleasant and well trained. Menu items are slightly over priced for what you get, but the food is good and almost worth every penny.
