I have always wanted to visit and watch a live comedy show. Well. I visited and watched something. I bought tickets to see Andy Haynes. Two guys on before him were terrible. Andy was even worse. Staff were rude as well. We won’t be back

Saw a Madonna themed Drag show here. It was absolutely fantastic. Super fun and interactive. Very clean restrooms not too far from seating. Excellent service. Had a great time! Would attend other events here.

The comedians were mediocre, they didn't serve my beer (Michelob Ultra), and the food was horrible. I think if the show was better, maybe I would return to this place, but it would have to be a big headliner for me to go back.

Flat bread pizza, stromboli, onion rings. Think gourmet bar food. We were all surprised by how good the food was.
