    Food was delicious! Our whole table enjoyed our meals. Great portion size too. The only complaint is that it was too loud. The live music was good, but at the same time it was really hard to have a conversation with our party when the performer was on stage.

    April 20, 5:45pm was our reservation: From the moment we walked inside, we were greeted with smiling faces. Our server James, was absolutely amazing! The food was fantastic, live entertainment was great… highly recommend this place. Can’t wait to come back again.

    Our waitress was excellent as usual. The calamari was very tasteful as we have had it many times before, but this time it seems to have been cut back portion size I would think to save cost. getting in to the restaurant, we could not park in the handicap zone as we noticed. There was skip the dishes, parked there with emergency lights flashing, not very considerate. Inside it was a bit of a hassle to get to a table as skipped dishes was lined up and would not move to let us in. The skip the dishes people seem to take over the front entrance. This was very annoying. One waitress told us that they can be very rude to them. This is unacceptable.

    Waiter nice but quick to get us rushed through. We had a reservation and it wasn't overly busy. Meals were tasty but portions were small. I didn't have the last fry gone and Waiter took my plate and utensils. Then when we got the bill we are told you guys to partake in the gift card program. Nothing posted around ur restaurant. Even though out card had your establishment on it.

    Request standard seating, when we arrived they had us seated pub style. Typically it wouldn't be a issue but I had 2 elderly parents and a sibling with a foot fracture. They were able to seat us in standard setting but this left us waiting. As for the food, it was ok. We ordered your over priced soft drinks and they were flat. I Request a replacement drink and that was the same. Water the next time. I have eaten here in the past and had a good experience. Must have been an off night.

    This was probably the worst time food was here as usually good. They fooled up several orders with steak and ribs done wrong and what seemed like crispy onions that was made the day before or thawed from frozen. The server seemed new but was good overall.

    Food was just ok. I had to send my order back to the kitchen twice before they got it correct. There were four of us eating and another person had to send their order back as well. No offer of any discounts for their errors.

    Very different from our first experience at your restaurant. Our appetizer and mains were ready at the same time which meant food was kept waiting inside and barely warm when served. The restaurant was full. We sat next to a table of about 30 so was very noisy. Our dessert choice was also not available so definitely not a great experience
