Ordered pork ribeye and filet. Both were perfectly prepared. Reasonably priced for area and venue. Went 2 nights. Both featured great bands.

Sat outside on a busy Monday night with live music. Service was prompt and friendly. The food was OK. Nothing special. We had saltimbocca chicken dish and the salmon.
