“Best restaurant in Burnsville hands down!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

This place is awesome. I don't even love burgers and the smokehouse burger is literally one of the best things I've ever eaten. No joke. I'm picky. The goat cheese and beets app is delicious as well. The seafood kettle is outstanding. The staff is wonderful. We always go on Saturday. I make a reservation and always get sat immediately. Go ASAP!

“Always great food & ambience here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

Finally a nice, classy place to eat well in Burnsville. The outdoor patio and firepit are beautiful and the indoor ambience is trendy n upscale. Beware on nights with wine specials it is very, very busy. Call ahead or stop in early to get a reservation. Parking is limited and frustrating here when busy.

“Never a bad decision to go here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

I've been here a few times and it has been absolutely spectacular every time. Their rotisserie chicken is fantastic, the mango wings are phenomenal, and every other meal I've had has been great. Service has been at or above par on every visit for us. The atmosphere outside during a summer night is spectacular. I highly recommend it!
