We (2 couples) were rather concerned going there last evening about the food.. given all the negative reviews, but we were pleasantly surprised!! And our server was fairly attentive, given that the venue was packed - had to be a sold out event. And the...More

One really comes for the music not the food. Had the steak, it was okay. Service was slow. We arrived at 6:30. Ordered drinks and one appetizer. Then ordered dinner by 7:00 but wasn't served until the act started at 8:30.
