We had dinner at Rooster’s, there was live entertainment, as well. Portions were large and the prices were good. Didn’t have to wait long on our food and the service was also good.

The best brunch we’ve ever had. $5 build your own mimosas was perfect with fruit and different types of juice to add. The food was just absolutely delicious and perfectly portioned. Will definitely be back again in the future!
