We visited this place, which we have numerous times before. The music was sooo loud that you could not talk with others unless you leaned really close and shouted. I heard someone from the table right beside us shout the same thing. This made for an unpleasant dining experience. The food was not as good as we have had in the past. The server was doing the best that she could. We will think about it before going again.

The service was terrible. Not many people there and had to wait 10 minutes to sit down. The chips taste like they had been sitting out open all day. When we complained the waitress told us we could say what we wanted we were paying the bill. The baked potato was dry like it had been cooked in microwave. The French fries were overcooked and cold. I had to ask for ketchup 3 times before getting.

The bar scene was a hot spot - but the food was average at best. Would not come again. The rooftop was nice.

Went here on the recommendation of a friend, so perhaps they were having an off night. Shrimp tacos were tasteless, and BBQ chicken flatbread was very plain. You would think it is hard to mess up BBQ chicken, but the chicken was chewy and the flatbread was barely warm, so I’m thinking it had been ready for a while. Kids Mac and cheese was Kraft MAC. Was just hoping for a decent meal tonight. Unfortunately I did not get that at HT.

We had a large party with a reservation. 90 minutes from ordering to receive first food. Over 2 hours until the last meal arrived. 1/2 good, 1/4 ok, 1/4 horrible (an uncooked steak and wrong sides on some). The manager was overwhelmed and short staffed but she tried everything she could to make it ok, however there is really no bouncing back once it has gotten to this point. The desserts were phenomenal though :)
