Looked forward to dinner out but was disappointed. The Old Bay wings were meaty, well prepare and seasoned. I was disappointed in the Cream of Crab soup. It was not hot and to say it was warm is a bit of a stretch. The soup...More

Great food & atmosphere, the bar for Happy hour is a great place to hang out, sometimes too crowded though. The Bare Bones special sandwich is awesome. Nice place to go and catch up with friends.

It's a good place to get ribs and the happy hour food is pretty darned good. Very crowded, though. Otherwise, the ambiance is bland. It seems I always have to track down a server when I dine there. The food is not disappointing but not...More

We dined on a whim on a Thursday night. The restaurant is divided clearly between the restaurant and pub/bar (with live entertainment some nights). The restaurant had ample seating (although on a Thursday night the main allure appeared to be the pub/bar). We ordered ribs,...More

Hi, I was asking for specific prices, not broad based generalities. I do appreciate the folks that took the time to answer. I called the company and they had no good reason as to why prices weren't included when several other customers posed the very same question. New blood on website design might finally address this.
