Was out with family. 2 of us had steak dinners which were reasonably priced and tasted great. Servers were young pretty girls, who were ok at serving, but managers made up for it.

Thank Richard T

I'd say go elsewhere... this restaurant has an identity crisis - not sure whether its a sports bar or if its a restaurant. On one side its a loud and rowdy sports bar and on the other side its a restaurant, but despite the prices, its not fine dining. The waitress is abrupt, not interested in what you have to say, she'll hand your meal to someone else to create confusion, your table won't be ready (even though you reserved) and don't make the mistake of ordering a platter that serves 2-4 (it serves one person for $30). The combination of these factors makes this particular sammy j's a ridiculous choice whether you want the sports bar side or the restaurant because its not successfully either. if you want a sports bar - go to a real one. if you want fine dining, go anywhere else (joey's is right down the street and catcus club is the other direction). Not for family, not for couples, not really for business / clients, and the sports bar didn't look that appealing either... so not sure who they are trying to appeal to, but we won't be back.

Would not recommend to anyone. All four of us had the halibut was very small and the sauce was so salty you couldn't even eat it. Small helping of mashed potatoes and three asaragus for $25.00 what a rip off we were still hungry when we left and had to go get something else to eat. What a bad experience for New Years Eve!!!!

Our experience here was awful. My daughter order the kids burger, and I am being literal here, the patty was half the size of the bun....just put in the middle, so half the bites were just of the bun. We order the calamari...and for $10 we got EIGHT pieces. Our food came cold...and it was not cheap. The worst part was the kids sundae. For an extra $3, the got ice cream and some whip cream in a glass cup...totally gross! Not one to write lots of bad reviews...but this was horrible!

food used to be better, but great location for people meeting from all over. Love that you can get some actual flavor and spices! decent service. nice and clean. good to watch a game in the pub area and the outdoor patio is fun when you have a nice sunny day with your friends to spend chatting
