“Try the truffle fries, best ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

Ended up here by walking in and stayed as the place was jumping and very noisy on a Monday night football night. Waited 10 mins for a table and ate well. Steak was fantastic brother had the best burger he had ever had (Kobe) and the fries that we both had were nothing short of amazing. We tried loads of other truffle fries after this night and nowhere came close to this place, they are outstanding! Service as great despite it being busy and crowd stayed all night.

“What's up with a bar where it's hard to get a drink?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

At 10ish on a Sunday night we sat down and ordered drinks and while we were at it, our food. Our burgers arrived in a flash. Before our drinks. Which was a bummer for hubby especially. My red wine went great with the fabulous house specialty burger & truffle fries. But a martini & burger isn't as well matched. Really it's just that we would've liked to have time to relax over our hard earned libations having just had the trip from h#*% flying in from Boston.

“Excellent food, crummy service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

We arrived just before the dinner rush and unfortunately were seated near a large party. Took 10 mins before anyone asked if we wanted to order a drink. The food arrived fast, but our waitress was consumed by the party nearby. Asked the manager for a second round of drinks which he said he would bring, but never saw him again. Finally the waitress returned and we ordered more drinks. Reasonably priced and excellent food, just very disappointed in the service.
