They usually have good bloody Mary's. Been here a few times. It's not always consistent unfortunately . One time I wondered if the bartender forgot the vodka. Food is just okay.

Tried to have lunch there but was greeted with the above caption. I have eaten here before, I had the club sandwich and found it to be a little pricey and then realized how big it was. It was like a 2 in 1.
