My husband and I went in for just a cocktail as the kids were out and about. We started at the bar and while the place was crowded it was not too loud and it hummed along quite nicely. The hostesses were gracious and welcoming and the bartender while very busy made us feel quite welcome by chatting about our vacation and what our day was like. We decided to stay and the food was excellent. It was nice sitting at the bar and seeing the place run along and chat with others who were sitting with us. I would love to bring the kids back and sit outside as it looked very welcoming.
