Be very hungry. My wife complained the portions were way too big! Only reason it wasn't 5 stars is the service was slow. But the food was excellent.

The sasuage sampler was awesome, the brussel sprouts were the best I've ever had, the king crab salad was so tasty, and my 20oz Sirloin was cooked to perfection. It's expensive, but it was worth every penny. I will definitely return!

The food here is spectacular. The atmosphere is fun. The service is excellent. The noise is crazy. It's like having an awesome dinner inside a drum kit. Which, if you're up for a fun loud night, is perfect. Probably not the best for an intimate night with one or two couples. I'll definitely go back.

Good Food! Try the sampler platter...and the oysters are good for a land locked restaurant. Love the lobster grilled cheese. The bar staff knows how to make a excellent cocktail....esp Jerald & Aimee
