We were seated a very short time after our reservation time. Big plus as far as we are concerned. The food was very good. I did think the prices were a little high.

Our server was amazing as was. The manager kept checking up on us. it was a really busy day and the food was a little bit delayed. But they never stopped letting us know that they knew we were there and wanted to help. The only negative was it was really loud between the music and the games

Food was good, our waitress was awesome. She was working behind bar but made killer bloody marys. Wish we caught her name.

Whoa! What a fabulous experience! The entire staff is AMAZING! From Hostess greeting Judy provided to our server Devon, Aniya the food runner, and the GM, Guy who came to check on us twice! The chef even came over to make sure our food was to our liking. Unbelievable customer service from the entire staff! Thank you for a wonderful night! Cheaper than buying groceries, and a fun night with great service! We’ll definitely be back!
