My wife and I had a great evening without kids and feeling like we were in our twenties again. Great food and cocktails, and excellent service!
Great Downtown Willoughby spot with good food, good drinks and friendly staff!
We came with another couple on Saturday night. The menu had many good choices. We asked our waitress for some recommendations. She gave us good choices. Her name was Miranda and she was FANTASTIC!!! Lots of good energy !
Everyone screaming at the bar
It was a little more noiser than I would like for dinner but I found out they had margarita specials at the bar. Im guessing it was why it was so busy .
Very nice menu, delicious food, good wine, and fun atmosphere
Disappointed no special menu on Valentine Day. Ordered cheesecake and it was not good tasted like wax. The food was very good but would not recommend the cheesecake.
Birthdays, great steak. The fried Oreos were bad. More like fried rocks! Service was excellent. The rest of the meal was great. Waitress was very nice and timely with everything. The bone-in-ribeye is always excellent but pricey.
Second visit. Equally impressed as the first time. Fantastic steaks. Our waitress was excellent. Ambience somewhat reminds me of Old Las Vegas which I love. Will be back!
The flatbread pizza was delicious. Have tried several different selections; all very tasty. Service is excellent and restrooms are clean and accommodating. Selection of beverages is one of the best around the area, not just downtown Willoughby.
Wonderful meal...steaks,wine 1/2 off!!...we will be back for sure..waitress was wonderful as well (sorry we can't remember her name..might have been Jodi??)
Always great. Great wings great steak. Delicious
Food was excellent and had a wonderful News Years Eve there!
Food was good - burger and Salmon. Little slow service at first. Waitress was very kind. We are from Indianapolis. We were visiting Grand River Wine region for weekend. Restaurant was a nice place to eat.
Always great food and friendly service.
It was good. Service was okay. A little off but it was a holiday.
Service was very slow. Drinks took a long time each time we ordered. Fries were really good. My chopped iceberg salad was mediocre. Just needed more of everything. Queso was decent. Burger was pretty good.
Casual like a bar, but good food like a family-owned restaurant.
Pretty decent food, though a bit pricey for the overall experience. Our server was very friendly and personable.
Service was excellent, Food was very good. Only downside is the seating is a little "weathered". They should consider replacing some of the cushions and springs.
We were seated next to a very loud group- the hostess assured us they were leaving soon. It was 30 minutes before the finally departed. We can't complain too much as this is basically a bar. The wait staff was fast, efficient and attentive. The beef barley soup appetizer was good tasting but was room temp at best. Salad was good, fresh items, nicely presented. Three in the party had sandwiches-- all good. Good fries. Pizza was very good. Thin, crisp, baked to perfection. Good value. We will return.
Perfect place to enjoy a meal everyday
Great service and the food was fabulous. I haven’t been here in a while and it was still as good as I recalled! Will definitely go again
The food was excellent and the service was even better, and it was our 1st time there and we will most definitely be back there asap
Our visit was last minute when Melanie May was asked to fill in for Erin Burke who was ill. We'd never been there but are big fans of Melanie and follow her quite a bit. She's extremely talented and entertaining. We very much enjoyed our visit. The pizza was excellent and the salads were very good. It got a little chilly with the front windows open the length of the eating area but overall it was a good experience. The service was excellent as well.
Great local atmosphere. Friendly staff. Not the kind of place you’d expect good sushi but they really deliver. Excellent value as well
Always great food and service for all dietary needs.
The food and service are excellent. Sushi is limited but delicious and very fresh. And some of the best meatballs available outside homemade.
Very friendly staff! Great service and really good food! Couldn’t ask for anything more!
good food however, I did not realize that this was a bar. It said "gastropub" which is different than a bar. Loud and difficult to hear our table mates.
Prices during happy hour were reasonable and appeared to be a good value. Dinner selections were over-priced.
Great happy hour specials.
Just awesome great and healthy options.
This was the first bad experience we have ever had at this restaurant. The noise (our server called it "music") was blaring to the point that my wife and I could not even have a conversation. The noise was incessant base guitar (or some similar instrument) banging away mercilessly, through a speaker under which we were seated. Two requests to our server did not result in any abatement of the torture!
The food was very acceptable, as it always has been, but overshadowed by our inability to enjoy our meals. Hopefully, this was an aberration.
We enjoyed our dinner (salad, pizza and salmon) were our choices. The music was a bit loud. Upon being seated in a corner booth, we noticed the bass on the music was so loud that it caused the booth to vibrate! Our server was attentive and offered to move us to another table which made a world of difference. Large craft beer list but would have been nice to have a simple domestic draft beer available. Enjoyed our dinner and we will return, just not to the corner booth!
Too loud for a Sunday night dinner. We couldn’t hear each other speak.
First time visit by three of the party members. Sunday night dinner was good, service pleasant and a different atmosphere. We had a table on the window so we got to people watch.
The food was good but they were out of multiple menu items
