Was convinced by friends to try this place again despite having a bad meal the last time. Not a good idea. The menu has changed for the worse (it is much smaller) and the portions are literally half the size of what they used to be. They forgot one important ingredient in the Thai chicken wrap - the chicken! Yes,... More

Everything here was wonderful: service, food, ambiance! Nice and large and also has a small semi-private party room at the back. Nice size. I had the steak sandwich and loved every bite. I would definitely return here and recommend this place to others. We came with a large group. They have a semi private room in the back which was... More

Five of us went here for brunch this morning. We were very pleased with the menu choices and the fact that there is basically one price and it includes 2 beverages, a side of bacon or sausage with an entree, and an entree that came with home fries. While the huevos rancheros (altho we ordered spicy) were bland, the portions... More

Went here for brunch and hosted a family gathering of 9 people. Had requested a quiet table and made reservations 2 months in advance. They honored my request and gave us a great table in a quieter spot. Food was very good (except chicken, advocado sandwich was dry). While I realize it is a busy time of year, (and our... More

Recently had the pleasure of having a Saturday brunch at Uptown Lounge & Restaurant. The value and quality was excellent. They offer brunch from 11am-4pm on Saturday and Sundays (reservations accepted) for $16.95 p/p including 2 drinks each. The menu choices are varied and tasty. I went with the salmon benedict, which was creamy and delicious. My friends had variations... More

This review is purely for their happy hour. They have good specials on drinks and on some food. The drinks are decent. My friends and I ordered several of their different types of martinis and they were not the best we've ever had but overall very enjoyable. The appetizers were ordered were fine. Nothing special but not bad. The prices... More

$5,00 drafts and $5.00 for a small burger during Happy Hour. Nice atmosphere. The Pretzel bites are okay, but the mustard sauce that comes with it need somethimg to give it more zing.
