First time here. I loved this place. Ordered Italian food from the restaurant next door that was fabulous. The band was Nick Moss with Dennis Grueling. Wow! What can I say. Great music, great, food, great place, friendly staff.

Amazing place to see a live show. Stellar musicians with stellar sound. Nice bar with friendly bartenders. It also had a great little bar connected to it [Sidebar] where we had a few drinks while waiting for the doors to open.
