The bar was packed due to a pub crawl which was a bit noisy and annoying, but otherwise had a good meal. Service was friendly. Prices reasonable. Food was excellent. Wish they granted 1/2's 4.5 out of 5

Food was delicious with huge portion sizes and lots of good options. Service was a bit slow but the place was pretty busy. All in all a good time.

My bad. I didn’t take any photos of the inside nor the food, so this review is going to be old-school. The buffet was setup for 20 of us in short order. We had chicken and bacon tacos as well as grilled fish tacos. There...More
