Coffee infused sauce for my steak and burger as big as my 15 year olds head, you won't leave hungry and will be very satisfied. Bartender makes fantastic cocktails and a nice diverse wine list.

Have never gone wrong with anything that we have ordered. My favorite is the blue cheese stuff burger with garlic fries. Best burger in town for the price.

Good service, good food, good drinks. What more can you ask for? Made a reservation and was seated immediately upon arrival. Waiter was attentive without being pushy. Food was delightful. It's a little dark inside the restaurant, but it does add the the ambiance.

Ordered tortilla soup, French dip, BBq Chicken Salad, Ahi tuna steak sandwich. Good: meat was tender, portions sizable, service friendly. Bad: BBq sauce has a funny chemical taste, food was surprisingly bland, fresh fish middle of the road. I found no reason to go back...More
