This is a great place to have a few drinks! Food is nothing special though and service isn't great even when they're slow. (Just sitting at the bar is your best bet.)

This restraunt has great food, service and atmosphere! We decided to eat there since it was convenient to our hotel. My husband said it was the best tasting burger he's had in a long time. My chicken and pita bread was amazing.

Shrimp and tomato bruschetta best I ever had. Very good burger and Fettuccini Alfredo. Super choice of happy hour deals for wine.

Service was great and the burgers and sides were delicious. The atmosphere is pleasant...music wasn't too loud so we could carry on a conversation. We were there during the day...not at night..so I don't know if that would make a difference.

Thank Toby A
