Good service. Strong drink. Quick service. Caesar salad and dinner were mediocre; not very flavorful. Coffee not hot enough.

“Good spot for a bite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Ate here last night with a party of four.Everyone was pleased with their meal.I especially thought that the crabcake sandwich was above average.Although it seemed to be busy with an after work crowd,service was attentive and professional. It is close to the metro and hotels. Prices were also reasonable.

“Good crowd”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

We were expecting a typical sports bar restaurant, but it really felt like fine dining. They did have a more casual bar area but we were seated in the restaurant room. The menu had a lot to offer from steaks, to pasta, to burgers. Good choice, also good drink selection.

We needed a dinner spot for 8 on a Friday night. They take reservations and we had heard good things - we were very pleased! We were seated immediately and have high praise for the service. The food was very good and the menu extensive enough that everyone could easily find something. Even though they were very busy we could still have conversations at our table.

“Decent food, lively atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

Nice sports bar, lively place. Came for dinner, food was good, drinks reasonable. Waiter was attentive and friendly. Overall a pleasant experience, not outstanding but certainly above average. We finished about 7:30 on a Friday and there was quite a crowd waiting to be seated.
