We waited 2 hrs before getting any food. The food was cold, small and tasteless. The service was totally the worst I've ever experienced.

My check was $16.50 for an overpriced and overcooked cheeseburger and decent fries. A business lunch, which should've taken 45 minutes took more than an hour because the service was slow. So I tipped $2.50 (15%). When the credit card charge posted, my Capital One mobile app alerted me that I left a generous tip of $14.81 (90%). I seriously... More

One Ghetto bin (look lounge) closed and another opened. This place is horrible, horrible service, horrible makeup filled bartenders, horrible management. Ghetto crowd and dirty place. Dont ever go there.. Bartenders need to understand they are workers there. stop pretending to be queens and do your jobs please

Good happy hour pricing, it's nice to sit outside, the chairs are comfortable and the umbrellas are large enough that if a brief shower happens you can remain outside.

Service is great, and the cuisine is very pleasant, with fresh ingredients and creative flavors. The decoration inside is very boring. Not expensive for what you get....

I had a business related happy hour set up here yesterday and was very happy with the outcome. Its right along the street and the main walls open up so you can go to the nearby bar from the patio area very easily. They seem to have really good appetizers and drinks. And the servers are pretty nice. I would... More
