“Not Great Bar Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

I have given this place a few chances for redemption, but I will never go back. The service always sucks and the food is nothing special. My boyfriend ordered some pasta dish last time and he got food-poisoning! And everytime a drive by the light up sign is always missing letters. Poor appearance!

“Average”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012

We ordered some food to go and they got confused about our order. It took them about 10 minutes to get it all straightened out once we got there. The food was just average.

Food was just OK. I ordered draft beer that was pretty bad. Service was not good. I would recommend to try other restaurant around.
