The food was great, the wait staff was great, but I gave it a very good rating because I was miserably hot the entire time. I understand it was hot outside, but come on, this is the desert, shouldn't the owners be used to keeping this place cooled off inside? By the time I left, my clothes were wrinkled and soggy and my hair hung down in sweaty strings. Not the look I was going for on a Friday night! The drink choices are extensive. Maybe I'll go back in the winter to try it again.

This is really more of a sports bar, but their menu doesn't really fit the bar scene. It was quite busy, but I am really tired of restaurants that must have a gazillion TVs in every corner of the room. Beer selection was excellent. Food was quite good.

this is one of those places thats hard to rate. Its at the River in Rancho Mirage and most of the day the parking is good but at dinner time its AWEFUL - so be aware--- the FOOD is Superb - have NEVER had anything less than wonderful. the Problem is the noise level.. there is the usual bar thing and LOTS of tv's all blaring and the facility has NO sound absorption at all. half the time you cant hear the person next to you let alone have a conversation. i find that unpleasant. its a shame too because tho the $$ are mid-high the food is Worth it.. but we dont go often because of the noise.

This was one of the worst restaurants I have been in a long time. The service-awful. The food-awful. The price-awful. It took over 2.5 hours for six of us to have food---really? This is not a fancy place. Tried to bring up frustrations to management and they could have cared less...not even I'm sorry. Will never go back.

Menu selection is great but the beers in the yard length glasses is to laugh for. Huge bar area, nice wood and tons of fun. Also, very busy so expect to be there a while.
