We enjoyed the layout. Live music was good. I ordered the Sloppy Hawaiian chicken. Not impressed with a $13 glorified cheese toast. I may not come back. The others enjoyed their selection. Wished it was better. The price was high for the dish.

Great food, and happy hour from 3 to 6. This place was the highlight of our trip. I had the chipotle lobster roll and the wife had the sloppy Hawaiian and both were excellent. Get the rocket fuel if you drink adult beverages. I hope...More
