We had excellent service from our waitress who went above and beyond to try and make our experience wonderful, however due to an event which the restaurant was unaware of and not prepared for, we had to cancel our order as the kitchen and bar were extremely backed up, and there was no chance to receive our order or enjoy which was unfortunate...

Great service and food was very tasty with a very good quantity.

Server was on top of her game and was pleasant informative and attentive without being too in our face.

Recommend a lunch there anytime

Amazing place for our date night. In 1 hour we had our first drink, appy (delivered and ate) and had our main brought to our table. Our server was wonderful and friendly, my husband asked if she could put Nascar on one of the TVS and she did! Will be back again

Found the service very slow. We weren’t even acknowledged until 20-30 mins after we sat down.

Great staff!! We had a table for 10 with people arriving at different times, plus separate bills and people wanting to pay for other people’s’ drinks etc. It could’ve been chaos but our server was awesome! Thank you!!

Yes but I would tell people that you will wait for a bit for service. If you don’t mind that everything else is good

While the service was good and the staff were lovely, unfortunately the food did not live up to similar standards. My chicken burger's bun was soggy as was my sister-in-law's chicken wrap. The fries and gravy were good and the best part of our meals. For dessert we ordered the brownie in a jar topped with ice cream and whip cream and unfortunately it was very disappointing. The brownie was so hard we could barely get through it with a spoon. Also, the music was terrible and too loud to have an enjoyable conversation. Overall a disappointing experience especially since it was to celebrate my sister-in-law and 10 year old niece's birthdays (of which I had mentioned when making the reservation but that was not acknowledged at all).

We started with the brussel sprouts and they were incredible! I don’t even like brussel sprouts and I had to hold myself back from licking the plate clean.

Our server was not great. There was only 1 bartender on duty. Service was slow. The salmon burger was delicious, but the Asian slaw was bland.

I have been here a few times and the food has been decent. I had the fish tacos and they were below average and my guest had to deconstruct her grilled cheese burger to eat it. I will take a pass next time.
