I went for a wedding kick off celebration and to be honest, it was a joke. From the moment you walk in you can tell the establishment used to be smoking, it still smells. We were given our waters one by one. Yes, they filled...More

The owner of this establishment is a complete womanizer. He treats his employees very poorly and does not deserve to own a single establishment. His behavior is inexcusable, and the servers there are B****es! This is a very terrible place to go! I would never...More

Had the opportunity to check out this business last weekend and was extremely unhappy with my experience. Although it is a nice atmosphere the food and service was mediocre at best. We had reservations for 8:00PM but due to the inexcusable poor service never finished...More
