Our hotel was really close by, so we started the night here. We had expected to just get a quick drink and some snacks and be on our way. Service was extremely slow, and we had to change our order twice because menu items weren't...More

Met up with work friends Friday night. Place was just so so. Beer selection was alright (fair amount of local brews), but definitely some I wouldn't order again. We ordered appetizers, where the fried pickles (!?) were a hit, everything else was bland. Left when...More

Nothing fancy. The food is fine, drinks aren't expensive, you have plenty of room and available tables. They have everything: billiard tables, dance floor, alive music and a reserved whiskey saloon in the basement!

Excellent staff and very attentive servers / bartenders! Basic bar food but loved the vodka lounge upstairs- lots of drink choices and very creative concepts! Get there early before the cover charge if you want to sit at all. Live music is fun but a...More

Stopped in here as we could not get in quick anywhere else around (party of 10). Lucky we got in before the club action started. We sat upstairs in the vodka room where they had at least 15 kinds of infused vodkas and samples were...More
