I have only been there once, because I would not go back. Primary reason is that I did not like the food or the atmosphere. Could not talk with people at table because live music was loud, and the place was dirty looking.

The decor may not be anything special (although I love the dog art) but the food sure is. Really tasty and a good individual serving. Dishes tasted: Steak, Trout and Rice with shrimp and sausage. The Calamari appetizer is great but the portion was small.

Keep in mind that May 10 is Mothers Day - and KBC doesn't take reservations. Get there early and be prepared to wait (it's worth it).
