The acoustics were terrible here even before the band started playing at 8. The food was okay but way overpriced. Service was a little slow and non attentive. For the space and food I found it overpriced.

Whenever we have visitors from out of state or out of the country I always bring them at this place. They love the food, the ambience, the staff and the service.

Stopped by on a rainy afternoon for Happy Hour. Great 1/2 price beer and wine selection! Lot's of craft beers. Appetizers were excellent and 1/2 price also! We sat in the bar area. Could use some updating, only negative. Excellent service as well. Thanks.
