I've never dined in (because I've heard the service isn't great), but have gotten wings to go on numerous occasions. They are consistently delicious and big. They are expensive, but they are worth it for a once-in-awhile treat.

Went for the wings. They were nice. Sat at the bar. Service was ok. I like cocktails. This seems like more of a beer bar. It was difficult for the bartender to find all the ingredients for the cocktail "special".
