“Give me fish taco or I will go postal”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

These people not only have a gorgeous atmosphere, the food is amaz-az-zing. Of course, I recommend the fish tacos, but everything on their menu is fabulous. For added value, I swear everyone who works there (male and female) are model material. Gorgeous people, glamorous atmosphere, great food=WINNING.

“GREAT food!!!!”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

Since I'm a foodie, I'm a little critical of quality and like to seek out the atypical. This place serves sandwiches and unique apps. unlike anywhere else in town that border on gourmetish. The flavor has always been excellent and the price reflects this but you get what you pay for. Go light on the drinks and the bill's not too bad. The wife and I like to check it out every 2 mo. or so. I recommend it highly for the culinary experience!!

“Delicious food, and neat atmosphere”
Reviewed February 11, 2012

Room 38 is a really neat lounge! I love their menu. The food is delicious, and they make several unique drinks! It wouldbe a great place to have a Bachlorette Party, reunion, or date. Their group rooms are very cool, and private.
