    The food was okay and its nice to be on the water but we had three instances of definite inappropriate situations for kids. One showed up on the glassware we got for our 10 year old's drink. Some of the paper hats were inappropriate and a bachelorette pArty show up with a life size naked Elvis doll. We had a lot of explaining to do on the car ride home.

    You have to know what to expect when you go here. The waiters will joke with you and act rude. Our waitress wasn't as rude as I've had before but she was funny. My friends said their food was great but I didn't like mine, however, the dessert was amazing. The experience is one for mature audiences only but it's one of a kind.

    Dined on 5/18/2013
    We found our own table, as the first one was too close to the band and we couldn't hear anything else. We loved the music, just not a table right next to them. Our waitress was fun and very attentive. The view of the river and skyline was spectacular. The food was just ok, but the fried pickles, crabby balls and chocolate dessert were excellent. Kinda higher price for average food. I recommend drinks and appetizers. Drinks were big and worth the $$. Fun for parties, not for young kids (under 14)

    Great time with great friends. Be prepared to have napkins thrown at you from neighboring tables, and the server are actual dicks to you, hence the name. It's a fun place to have a good laugh with friends, and the hats each of us got were probably the best part. Not sure how accurate they were, but awesome time. The food was typical American food - wings, burgers, ribs, etc. But you go for the laughs, booze, good vibes, and live music.

    It was a fun place to hang out...food was very good and the live band added to the enjoyable evening. Our waiter had a great sense of humor and never got too vulgar, which I appreciated. Friendly staff that stopped by the table just to chat.on their way to and from the kitchen. Never rushed to eat and leave...we will be back.

The band was good, but no one could talk/hear when they were playing, although they did only play one or two songs every hour or so. Thank you to everyone that put up with us, you guys were so great! We would love to come back! :)

    Was totally prepared for a fun sarcastic evening with friends. Our server seemed very disinterested in us. All other tables immediately received hats but we were through with an appetizer and still hasn't received any. I was taking my friend's daughters out for a fin night because their mom, my friend, just was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer. We were hoping for a better experience! We ended up only eating an appetizer because we barely saw our waiter! We were very disappointed and won't be going back!
