We took our nephew because we had a Groupon. The menu has plenty of choices, but doesn't list adult beverages. After ordering it was 20 to 30 minutes before our food arrived. The Boji Blue was nice, had plenty of flavor with the blue cheese and sauce, the onion rings were a bit much.

We saw several people trip on the stair going into the main room that's just inside the entrance. The bright tape marking it has mostly been worn off, and the warning sign is dark so it blends in with the rest of the room.

It's decent, but not really worth coming all the way from the western suburbs.

We had purchased a Groupon coupon for this restaurant. The service was average to slow, though our waitress was pleasant and friendly. The food was okay, nothing special. We had a booth, which was uncomfortable. The room was half full, but noisy. It was hard to have a conversation. Probably won't be back.

We ate dinner here recently while visiting family in Des Moines. Our server was fantastic, but the wait on the food was a bit long & we were disappointed that the food was nothing special. It is another one of those places that tries to do everything, it seems.

We were staying next door at a hotel. Went with a group of five ladies, two in our group had a whole margarita spilled on them. One of the girls had to go back to the hotel to change out of her soaked pants. No effort was made to comp our bill or buy us a round of drinks. In fact, we had to flag down another server to get our table wiped down from the sticky drinks. Eventually we asked the manager if any drinks would be covered and they paid for the margaritas of the two girls who had drinks spilled on them. We were not impressed with the lack of customer service. Skip this place and go anywhere else!
