Good meeting place to have a discussion not noisy with enough space between tables. Wings were good and very accommodating staff. The great personality of the staff makes it worth going.

We had a super casual baby shower here this week and I can't say a single bad thing. We got in early to decorate, the food was great, and the staff were lovely. I'd totally recommend it.
