We have gone here dozens of time and we stick to the quesadillas, wings, and cocktail shrimp. We go here only for the rooftop view. If Kyle is working, it is a bonus! They finally added a television upstairs so it's nice to watch a...More

Great place we happened upon for an impromptu family meal. Our server was friendly and helpful. Good food and great atmosphere. Couldn't ask for anything better. Had a strawberry fields cocktail. A tad sweet without being overly sugary. Great beer selection. Warm pretzel and cheese...More
