The food was above average, but the decor and ambiance leave much to be desired. Very simple "bar-type" decor. The waitress was friendly however, which was nice.

The burger special was a good deal...only $5 for a burger. If they didn't have that, we would've left. Everything on menu is pricey. Decor is a little tacky, although the chance to write name on wall is cool. Wouldn't visit again.
