“OK place, nothing special...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

The place is OK, nothing special... However the employees act like you owe them something and they do you a favor by letting you in... The doormen are rude and unprofessional. My co-workers and I used to go there but we've decided not to - there are tons of good places around. I am not going back there.

“Half Priced Burger Tuesdays- and Staff that makes up for the Patrons”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

The burgers are delicious, and half-price on Tuesday. The food is generally quite good. The staff is great (especially Thomas). On a weekday happy hour, a generally nice place to be.

The clientele leaves something to be desired, mainly meat-heads and bimbos, but the staff, the food, the great beers on tap, the pool tables, the skee-ball etc. make up for it on a weekday. I'm not a fan of it on the weekend, but if you are into a meat market where you can pound some alcohol and meet vapid dudes and broads, this is probably your spot.

“Great place to hang out”

The service was very nice, even with a full house. The games are amusing, nice music and good place to visit.

“The best loaded tator tots!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

Went here with some friends for some birthday drinks. The place is spacious and trendy. We got there early around 8 on a Saturday. It wasn't too crowded during that time but by 10:30 it was packed. The DJ was on point and played mainly dance music. The crowd really seemed to be enjoying themselves. The drinks were pretty tasty and the loaded the tator tots were delicious! I would definitely come here again, before the younger crowd arrives.

“Trendy bar restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012 via mobile

Went on a Monday night and was really nice. Not a drinker but really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was really good. Got a Dr Pepper pork chop. Very good. Menu prices are very reasonable. Definitely worth trying.
