Very noisy but food and service great. Made reservation and was placed in dining room with several loud children. Also lighting was poor. Saw a person use his phone flashlight to see menu.

I had “the usual” pizza-very good! My wife had the cowboy chili and gave it 👍👍 and the Parmesan truffle fries were to die for! Jordan provided exceptional service!

We had to wait 15 minutes for a table for 2 despite a table for 4 being open, which remained empty the entire time we were there.

Went with a large group on a Friday night. Great service and reasonable prices for a big group. The live music was fun and the scene was bumpin’.

The service could have received a 4 Star rating if the staff was more focused on the customer. There seemed to have a training going on for the espresso machine and the conversation regarding the proper recipe for coffee drinks could be heard by th customers. Training needs to be completed and up to speed before customers are in the restaurant.
Food was tasty and very ample.
