First,let me say again.. I love this place. That known, they are under staffed in the front end. Needs one more Bartender, since the bartender takes the seating information. And two more servers because we were lost in the shuffle. Drinks had to be reordered...More

My son recommended that we try this place out after hearing several good reviews from friends. It is a small bar, just off Genesee Street near Jamesville Road. Rather non-descript. There are small booths towards the back where we parked ourselves to peruse the menu....More
