“One of our favorite when in town”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

We ALWAYS go here on Wednesdays when in town. The two for one steak and shrimp is always good. The chefs give you a great laugh. Sometimes the wait staff is a little slow. Overall we return again and again

“Very nice dinner”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Went last night for the first time. We had a wonderful dinner. We had a 15 min wait, so we ordered a Volcanato dring, yum. We had scallops for dinner and they were cooked perfict. A little on the high price, but a ton of food. Nice place to go for a special night. We had a new server and she had no clue and we hd a long wait for drinks and soup, but still worth the trip.

“Great food but dirty”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

The low bar stool cushions were filthy. If a friend had furniture that dirty I wouldn't sit down. They had a dirty trash cans visible to the guests.

The food was great. Our chef was a little over the top. He made several inappropriate comments including when one of the teenagers asked where the restrooms were he said do it in your pants. We were eating dinner and I didn't need to hear that. He also made a comment about a birthday girl turning 18 and now she was legal eluding to the fact an adult could date her. Ick!
He was very funny at times but he never took a breath.

The food was very good and we would have enjoyed the evening if we had any of the other chefs.

The staff was hanging out in the bar while on duty which seemed very unprofessional.

Very entertaining dining experience. The chefs are great at catering to everyone's needs. The bar staff is also great. It's nice to have a drink as you wait for your table. Reservations are recommended.
