“Great Atmosphere, "meh" pricing”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

I went with my two friends this past summer because we had heard all of the amazing comments on how awesome this place was. I was pleasantly surprised by the amazing view it had, but their food wasn't the best that I've had before (although still pretty good). The prices were a little high for our taste as well (we're college students that want to live life and not spend all of our money). They did get one of my girl friends to dance on a table (who felt very awkward and didn't want to do it alone so I joined her and we just raised the roof the whole time). It does have an awesome atmosphere for where they are located, which is a plus. If you eat here, don't forget to check out the wishing wall and take a gander at what other people have been wishing for lately! ~Spoiler alert, some of them are hilarious

“Not a Favorite”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

The Hangout was the closest place to our condo. We (8 golfing buddies) went twice and just didn't have the best time. The first night it was packed and our food order took a ridiculous amount of time and was quite pricy for the quality. The second night, we just went for drinks and ended up being hassled by some "locals" until security escorted them away. One bright side: the bartenders were very nice, attentive, and fun.

“View is great, price is no”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

The view at the Hangout is great and the atmosphere is wonderful. The food, however, is overpriced. While there is nothing wrong with the food, it wasn't anything special other than the price. The food is priced like it a four star restaurant but tasted like most other eateries.

“The Hangout!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

I love the Hangout! They always have good music. Even in the off season! The food and drinks are a little high but it is a tourist zone. Fire pits are a nice touch too. I have been during summer and football season and always a good time!

“Over-Rated”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

I guess if you have kids, its a good family friendly place with plenty of games to keep them occupied. I personally find it too crowded, with way too much going on and kids running around everywhere. The food is average and the drinks are expensive. It's one of those places you go to just to check out.....but never go back to again.
