We have been here to see bands 2 different times so we thought we'd go on a regular night just to hang out...The music was very dull and the lights were extremely bright. The restaurant and bar are all in the same area. Families are eating with kids in highchairs while adults dressed like they are in a time warp from the 80's are at the bar trying to get lucky.We grabbed a table and waited over 10 minutes for a waitress to look our way, and keep walking. We probably should have left then. We didn't. An older woman asked if we'd been helped. We ordered 2 drinks and opened a tab. My husband got his drink, finished it and we waited at least another 10 minutes for her to come back which she never did. Finally he got tired of waving his hand like a schoolboy to get her attention so he went up to the bar to get our bill. they handed him a receipt w/out our credit card. We had to wait for our waitress to cash us out she couldn't do it.I mean shouldn't the bartender have those basic skills to use a register?Did I mention that the manager stood at the bar witnessing the whole thing and just sat there?.WOW. NEVER AGAIN!

Spent a Sunday afternoon watching football with my son-inlaw. Found the establishment to be very clean and inviting! The bartender was very accommodating in making channel changes for the appropriate game. The beer was cold with an excellent selection of available brands on tap. The food was typical bar food that tasted good and was served at the appropriate temperature. During the warme weather here in Texas, the outside patio was very inviting

The food is great! I have sat for ten to fifteen minutes waiting for an initial visit to the table. If you want a refill on water or another beer, you may as well get it yourself. I did on several separate occasions and got tired of it. I haven't been back.
