Was team luncheon for 12 people. Pleasantly surprised that food was as good as reviews said. Great service and team was very happy with all of their entrees.

Great place for groups! The layout of the restaurant accommodates large groups seated together. We had 20 for a holiday party and it was excellent! Good service, good food, great time!

The bar area is by the kitchen which makes it very uncomfortable due to the heat from the kitchen

Server explained to my party that the shrimp and fries were fried in the same oil...seems very problematic for shellfish allergies and other issues.

I thought the ambiance was great, but seeing chairs that had tears in the seating just as you walked in was a negative. I would have moved those chairs to more discreet areas.

The food was bland. A little salt and pepper would have been an improvement. Nothing bad just nothing special.

The listing on OpenTable was completely misleading. We went for dinner on a Saturday Night, at 7:15, and the place was incredibly loud and clearly a bar scene. When we asked for a table where it was quiet, we were told that our only choice was to go outside, where it was quitter.
While it was quieter outside, most of the tables had Hookahs that people were actively smoking. The air was quite smoky, and the scene bizarre. We were with our children. We were horrified and left immediately. We travel a lot for sporting events, and always use Opentable. We have never had a problem in the past. You need to be more careful with the listings.and description.

Happy hour drink prices and appetizers are excellent - we had very good food especially Mac and cheese balls and BBQ chicken flatbread. Service was attentive without being intrusive and we had a great time

Service was terrible, food was terrible, so loud you can't hear anything, and the bartender can't even make simple drinks.

This is not a place to take one's mother for brunch. The food is plentiful, but not necessarily gourmet. If one would to have conversation, one should arrive early (11ish) and be gone by 1:30 or 2. The noise level steadily rises to a point where one must yell or read lips.

Had a wonderful time last Saturday, but the problem I faced was once the crowd increased because of the DJ. We saw our waitress less and less. This became problematic once we wanted to pay her.

Save your money. In a town/area with so many options, pass this one by.

Great happy hours, different options each night. Very random food selection, from tacos, to pasta, to sushi. Tried a bit of all and enjoyed them all.

My family and I went to "A-Town" because of the reviews, and sadly it was so underwhelming, I wish we'd never wasted our time.

1.) 30 min went by from when we sat down, until our server came by to even ask for our drink orders. In fact, I had to go to the hostess and ask if we had a server before even that happened.

2.) I ordered a steak medium , that was so overcooked, even the server realized they screwed it up.

3.) It was such bad communication, that the server even admitted that she told the server who was supposed to take care of us she had a table sat 25 min before she (our server) came to the table.

Our server (when she finally came) was great. The food was not. The only person who ate their food was my wife and that's because she was starving.

Do not waste your time here if you're looking for dinner. Go here if you're looking to hook up with a college drop-out, looking for a cheap drink and a slutty chick.
