Been here many times and the food has never disappointed. Service is great. Food is better. There are banquet facilities downstairs but I'd stick to the bar and restaurant. They won't disappoint. Great Pizza is free during Happy Hour on Friday's. Bye.....

At times the service and food are good, and at other times just the opposite, especially when crowded.
