Glad you enjoyed yourselves for dinner and then entertainment area afterwards. I took care of the booth situation. That torn booth has been placed in the very back area which is not sat as much. Then brought up a good booth to replace it from...More

I have been coming here since the days when it was Gallaghers. After the name change, same ownership, the service became terrible, the lights are so bright that you have to wear sunglasses. And now, here comes the worst part. They have removed half of...More
