I went recently not realizing the name had changed to The General. The interior is the same as the previous establishment. The menu was a bit smaller, but that is a good thing. The wait staff was helpful and attentive. I had the upside down...More

Went with a group of 8 before a concert. Service was good but our food came out at different times. Was over cooked. Worse wings I have ever had. Fries were overcooked and dark. They really need some help in the kitchen.

We stopped in on Nov. 17 prior to a concert at the G.M. centre and we were disappointed. The menu is VERY limited on concert nights and none of us enjoyed our meals much. My Monk burger was about as dry and overcooked as could...More
