We were here a year ago for drinks, so we came back again to try the food. When we entered we immediately noticed how LOUD it was inside, so we were happy to be seated in the back next to the kitchen where the noise was a bit less, but not much. It was difficult to carry on a conversation with someone just across the table. I again had the "P.S. I Love You" drink which the Loop's martini recipe is Hendricks gin and cucumber mash, very delicious. I tried the Pecan Crusted Chicken, which is a flattened chicken breast, coated with a pecan (could not taste any pecan flavor) breading, cooked until almost burned and plopped on top of a pile of bland mashed potatoes. Obviously you can tell I wasn't impressed, not to mention the price of this entrée was about double what it should have been, and about three times what it was worth. Aside from being far too loud inside the ambiance is decent. They could reduce the number of TVs hanging on the walls. It is difficult to tell if they want to be a fine restaurant or a sports bar, the blend is not the best.

Enjoyed the atmosphere. Up beat and friendly staff. Food is good. Bathroom is outside of restaurant....that is strange.

We loved the upscale contemporary atmosphere. The prices are not bad. Steak and burgers just bit higher priced than typical, but the quality of the food is good. The pecan chicken was comparable to chicken fried steak, however the topping on the chicken was great. (balsamic glaze with diced squash & carmelized onions. The broccoli was very good. The mashed potatoes were not great. The seemed to have a great deal of butter in the "prepared" mashed potatoes. The chicken avocado sandwich was excellent as were the garlic french fries. The chocolate chip cookie dessert is excellent and feeds 3 - 4. The server was very attentive. The amount of TV's was appropriate. After all, it is a sports bar.

Loved it all. I have had 2 occasions to eat here in the month of December, one was good all the way around. The other they had a huge struggle with service. Granted it was Christmas Eve lunch, but it was my Mom's birthday. C'mon, service shouldn't change, just because you want to leave work early. But the food here is so flavorful. We had shared a bunch of different things; the spare rib burger; too die for, the steak lettuce wraps were great as was the spicy Thai shrimp, the only thing that was out of this world was the blackend chicken avocado melt; it was good flavor but too much sauce or something. The chocolate chip cookie, ice cream dessert was huge! Four of us couldn't finish it. There french fries are out of this world good.

All was tasty and super fresh ingredients used. Great gluten-free menu and excellent vibe when we went for what was an outstanding lunch. We had salads with grilled salmon and they could not have been prepped any better.
