Very impressed with their wings. I went there for wing night! Way better than Buffalo Wild Wings. Bigger wings, better taste, better atmosphere, similar prices.

Nice place, very loud as there is no carpet or wall coverings to absorb the sound, when the band is there, it get very loud. Good food and good service and great bar.
