Such a fun night out with other couples. It isn't fancy, but the drinks are good and the food is yummy. The entertainment is almost always very funny!!

Went to see Vic Dibitetto. He was great. The venue is worn and outdated. Needs a makeover. Not a great environment. It’s time for the owners to put some money back into the business.
