If you want great food, music and atmosphere this is the spot. Best casual restaurant in town. I usually order fish tacos or whatever the special is that night. Whatever Tommy is cooking is fantastic.

Had a great time. The room was private for about 40 people. Our service was great. He kept everyone's bill accurate and drinks were flowing. Great time, good food, awesome service.
