There were over 30 for a business dinner. We had a private room, and they served banquet style. Everything was great, as well as the service. Good fun with great food.

We always encourage reservations, just in case. You can easily book online through our website or OpenTable, or you can contact the restaurant and speak with the host directly at 816.472.7427. We hope this helps!
