Went on a Thursday night before a show. The place was packed so not a lot of room in between tables and being near the door didn't help. We had burgers and were nothing special. Staff were nice and service fast. Overpriced like most places...More

I wouldn't recommend. Terrible atmosphere, cheap decor, service slow and needs a good training. Food is horrendous, tasteless and cheap. Won't be back.

Location is great if heading to a show but that’s as far as it goes. Seating is incredibly cramped, way too many tables in one small area. Food is ok, not bad but nothing special, and not cheap. What is going on with no WiFi,...More
