Yummy yummy yummy cookie desserts. Really cute set up. The service was ok. I enjoy really friendly outgoing people, but I think our waitress had a long day. Full bar. Lots of parking. Weekend hours.

Been here couple of times. Plan to wait on Friday and Saturday evenings for a table. Food is always good and service is usually pretty quick and friendly. Bartenders are hit and miss, especially if it's busy. A nice place to go and eat.
