It is a good place for lunch. There is limited seating space inside. It is not ideal for a dinner because it is so small. The food was nice and i would recommend it for lunch.

Great place to go for cocktails and happy hour (buy two , get one free). Good music and great atmosphere. Food is convenient (if you are already there) but average. Go for the drinks and atmosphere - not the food.
