We had good service. Appetizers and entrees were plentiful. A bit pricey for a family budget to dine there often.

Good service and some of the best chicken tenders or bites in town. A little spendy but order the bites and fries to save dollars.

Nice restaurant and setting. Open and clean. Food was okay. Nothing amazing. Had the shrimp scampi. Had a lot of shrimp which is good. But wish it was seasoned more. Would go back but only if invited along.

It was packed with 30 min wait. Customer service was generally very good - excellent at the bar. The attempt at an old-fashioned was pretty rough, slightly bourbon flavored water (you could see through it). They took it back without a problem and I got...More
