We were there during a slow time over lunch so not a lot of excitement.The burger was delicious, the flatbread pizza just wasn't my thing. The service was really good and atmosphere was fun. I loved their strawberry lemonade!

A genuin experience. Experience live jamming/music while dining. The food was not gourmet, but the BBQ ribs (do not order the full rack unless your very hungry) were really good. So is the price, as you get good quality, live entertainment with your meal. Will...More

If you plan to talk, there is plenty of time before and after the show.We went for brunch which was a buffet and the waiters only helped to replenish the coffee and drinks. It was a fabulous time for all age groups!
