Our mission? Great people helping other great people totally have a blast while enjoying amazing food. Wow, that was a mouthful. But can you blame us? We’re a restaurant. One that specializes in delicious food and great times. Our goal is to make you laugh. And depending on your hot sauce tolerance, cry.

In all seriousness, we take real pride in our food. Try our Cluckin’ Fresh Chicken Fingers, made and seasoned with fresh, never frozen chicken tenders. This isn’t run-of-the-mill pub grub. Our Band of Chefs are influenced by a wide variety of tastes and have travelled across the globe to gain inspiration.

But outside of the kitchen, we find it hard to take ourselves seriously. We have an Elvis booth. For no particular reason. Folks, that really does say it all. We’re sports fanatics, music nuts and love a good joke. If you’re into at least one of those things, we should hang out.

    Great food. Great staff. The music is way too loud and then the live music was preparing to play and doing his soundcheck over the music. Just ridiculous. Impossible to have a conversation during your meal. We just wanted to eat as fast as we could and get out. Other than that everything else was excellent.

    This location tends to get very busy at times. We had reservations luckily. We were promptly seated to the type of seating we had requested (standard table versus hightop table). Our server Emme was very pleasant and provided prompt excellent attentive service. Food was great as well and no disappointments at all. Only negative is that the music can be a little overpowering, so be prepared for the loudness.

    Our server was poor. Slow to respond to a request for water, he never offered water after we were seated. Slow to ask about our satisfaction with the entrees and was just plain slow, ie lethargic. Our fish batter was under cooked and quite unpalatable. Overall a poor dining experience.

    While our server did his best the restaurant was over busy without enough staff. We had to get our own cutlery and napkins from a neighbor table and waited for 45 mins and 4 asks for water. The food was ok but one meal was obviously burnt and still placed our table by, who I think, was the manager. Never ever showed up with replacement for the food. The meal was removed from our bill but I figure that was only fitting as no one could eat it. No manager ever came to speak with us, offer anything or apologize for the experience.

    There servers were very accommodating, made sure the drinks were refreshed. They have the best chicken fingers around hands down. Music is crazy loud, I was there with my family. Had to repeat ourselves to wait staff. Would actually consider not returning due to the noise level. You are a restaurant, not a concert venue. The music was turned down a bit, I guess (hope) someone complained.

    All 4 meals were delicious and our server was fantastic but I won’t be back due to the noise level. It was club music with a pounding base and in no way appropriate for dining. It actually ruined our get girls together. We couldn’t hear each other speak which was a big part of the reason we went to dinner!

    Food was good but not for the price you pay. It has gotten very expensive. I could get a steak dinner for the same price and most steak places serve free bread so don’t need an appetizer. So it’s definitely not a place for everyday dinning anymore and more of a place you would only go 1 or 2 times a year!!!

    Food this evening was not great. I have eaten here many times and the meals are disappointing lately. The noise level of the music is far too loud also. It is a struggle to have a conversation at the table. I’m thinking it’s my last visit.
