The food here is wonderful. Margaritas are great. If you go here you must try the grilled artichoke. It's amazing. If I lived in the area I would be coming here once a week just for that.

Drinks are way over priced for the location. Food is so so but the fact you can't do separate checks is a big no no. It's just math people!

Yes, as with any bar, buyer beware, know what you're ordering and how much you will be spending...Buy Responsively and Drink as if this is your last one...but never, never, never drink and drive!!!!
