My wife and I enjoyed our anniversary dinner here. The restaurant was crowded and we didn't have reservations so we sat at the bar and really enjoyed our meal. The bartender was friendly and added to the fun evening. Great experience and highly recommend it.

I only visited that one time and we had a male server whose name was not Bri. Regardless, the place was really great and our visit could not have been better.
