Came here on a Friday afternoon with some friends and the place was empty. The bar was big and the drinks were good. After we were seated the food was pretty solid too.

I'm so glad that I finally stopped in to give this restaurant a try. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. The cheese and meat appetizer was delicious (and the portion is very generous). I can't wait to go back.
