    We have had such great service and food here and I wanted to celebrate my birthday with my adult children who hadn’t been before. Our service was very poor from Lacy. She acted like she was mad that we were there but hung out and talked with the others tables that she knew. It was a slow night. The food was good but I wouldn’t go back for that kind of service. Too bad.

    Our waiter Josh made it fantastic! The food was very delish and so were the cocktails. We then went into the bar for musical entertainment. It was a fun local experience.

    I was really looking forward to trying this restaurant as I have been to some of their other locations. The service was slow, the food average and the overall feel was that there wasn’t enough staff for the tables seated, and it was pricey. I don’t mind paying for good food and services, but it’s a real bummer paying a high price for mediocre quality.

    Arrived 30 minutes before our reservation and had no problem being seated early - it was Sunday for lunch for two. We ordered the cowboy chili and cheeseburger to share. The cheeseburger was very tasty but the cowboy chili was a bit on the spicy side for my taste - I like spicy food in general. I would definitely return as the other menu items seemed worth trying. Service was good and ambiance was nice for lunchtime.

    Our waiter was super kind enough to track me down when I left behind my jacket by mistake. He is such a good soul. The pizza definitely needs more thinking through in the menu formulation and kitchen departments. A very bland taste. The mushroom cakes were delicious.

    The kitchen didn't get our salad out until after our dinner was served. At that point we asked them to take it back that we were no longer interested. We wanted it as a first course. The waiter was excellent. It was beyond his control. Dinners were nice.

    The name of this restaurant is a little misleading as it has the word bar in it. It does have a bar and it looks like a bar restaurant. The food is not your typical bar food. It has bar food items and upscale restaurant items. All of which I found to be awesome. See pics. The restaurant is clean. Bathroom is clean which leads me to believe the kitchen is clean. Server apologized for food not coming out sooner and I didn’t know what he was talking about. I though timing was good. We didn’t feel rushed either. Very few restaurants do my wife and I go back to a second time. If we lived here we certainly would.

    Disappointed that some of the menu items actually on the menu and online were discontinued. Came in specifically for two of the fish items. If had known would have considered a different restaurant. Quality of food that we did have was good as always, but not what we had wanted for dinner.
