Our first server sucked but after we were able to move from an over-cramped bar table to the main dining section and got a new server it was better, They did not cook the burgers to the correct temperature the first time. The menu said that the burger came with onion rings and chow chow but got fries and onion... More

Food was delicious. Order shrimp with our steak but didn't receive it with the order. Wasn't a big deal to us but the manager did remove it from our bill when notified of the mix up. Waitress was great. Cold beer and great on tap selection. Outside seating was a little windy but they can't control Mother Nature.

Dined here 10.05.16 & actually really enjoyed it! Our waiter was super nice.. can't remember his name, but he mentioned something about his daughter. Anyways everything was very good except for the chicken tenders, but hey it happens.

We arrived fairly late. The late night menu was our option, bar area sitting was asked of us, however not mandatory. There was 1 waitress, she was handling everything from the bar to serving tables. She was very nice and worked hard at keeping everyone happy. Food was great.

Lot a lot to say here. Food was pretty good but nothing special. Service was pretty slow and there were several people working. When I went to find the waitress to get the bill, there was actually no one on the floor. Not behind the bar, hostess station or in the dining room. This was a good 2-3 mins before... More

Went there for a late meal and all they had was appetizers. Got the one order of sesame seed chicken strips and 2 unsweet teas. The chicken strips might have tasted better if we could have ate them the same day they were cooked. Never got a refill on tea. Price for 2 teas and the chicken strips was over... More
