“not very good”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

place had no air conditioning. Ordered salmon with pasta the salmon was burned but the pasta was good. Another person ordered shrimp and pasta and they were burned as well. The appetizer, shrimp and calamari, had 1 shrimp. Definitely would not recommend, could have been much better.

The situation with the uncomfortable heat inside our restaurant is pretty rare, but that doesn’t make it any more right. We recently have had to repair our air conditioning, and sincerely apologize for the uncomfortable dining experience you had. Thanks for sharing your feedback about your meal as well, and we are sorry you did not see the value in your meal.

“Food was fine”

We ate breakfast one day and dinner on another. We enjoyed the food, but we didn't note anything overwhelming about the place.

We didn't blow you away the first time, but consider coming back for some of our great deals. We have a great Burger and Boozy Milkshake combo now offered on Sundays for lunch and in the bar for just $19.

“Excellent on all accounts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

We ate here based on reviews and so glad we did. We sat at the bar, ordered pizzas and salads and house red wine and it was DELICIOUS!! Amanda the bartender was so helpful and friendly...she is the best. We had such a great experience, mixed with the closeness to our hotel, AND Amandas service, we went back the next night for a repeat. Delicious again and Amanda was so sweet, she remembered us and even sent us a comp. dessert! Now thats service...Highly recommend this stop if you want really good food and GREAT service. It is a very popular happy hour so get there early for a good seat...or any seat.
