Stop in and try the food. If you are staying in one of the hotels nearby this is the perfect place to come and eat. Right next door, can even walk if the weather is good. On a nice day request to sit outside.

Stopped in one Friday evening for drinks & apps with friends. Granted, the place was busy but the service was terrible. Food & drinks were mediocre. I had always heard good things about this place but we were not impressed.
