    The absolute best filet mignon I have ever had in my life. The roasted potatoes and asparagus were great too. We got the cheesey pull apart bread as an appetizer. That was delicious as well. 100% look forward to coming back again!

    There were six of us, including two children. The waiter was very patient and accommodating. The kitchen was attentive to the food allergies that one of the children had. The burgers and sandwiches were very good. It was a nice casual atmosphere that was perfect for the occasion. I am so glad we went there.

    I’m a vegan, but the rest of my family isn’t so I wanted a place we could all enjoy and I thought they were vegan friendly since they had vegan tacos on the menu. I asked our waiter about any accommodations that could be made for a vegan appetizer but he wasn’t familiar with what vegan meant. My tacos came out with just impossible meat on really hard tortillas and fries. Unfortunately this is another restaurant that checks the box by offering one vegan option, but isn’t truly vegan friendly. The rest of my family’s food was also just ok, no real seasonings. It was all basic food at not basic prices.

    They have transitioned a new menu but it's still great food. No key lime pie on the menu anymore but the apple crisp with ice cream was a reasonable substitute. Overall, having been a patron since the original open, They have maintained a consistently great menu offering and attentive staff.

    Food was fantastic! Pretzels and beer cheese, kids chicken tenders, Chicken Louisiana, and Peanut Butter Pie were all top notch. Waiter was fabulous and is the one that suggested the Chicken Louisiana. When he found out we were celebrating my birthday, he put a candle in my dessert and sang happy birthday.

    First time here and loved the atmosphere -- sort of "upscale sports bar". Great menu and reasonable prices. Host was fantastic. Drinks were OK -- served Negronis in a Martini glass, which is wrong -- but they tasted fine. Generally food was good -- chowder tasted great, but it actually isn't CLAM chowder if there are no clams. Fries would have been better without the starchy coating. Reuben was perfect. Our server was either new or overworked or not very good -- but the other server seemed to be doing a fantastic job. We'll definitely return, order a bit differently and hope for another server.

    Air conditioning was to high we were freezing . Also we ordered a bottle of wine and our waiter poored the first glass without having us tasting it first (we understand that American are not much into wine but waiter should know that when you open a bottle at a table you only poor a little wine for tasting and than if the wine is not defective than you may file the glass)

    This place has great food, great service, and honestly super nice patrons. We had a great time for our first time there, and had a toddler which isn’t always easy. The staff was so nice and accommodating, and knew the importance of moving the baby’s stuff along pretty quickly. We’ll definitely be coming back - for date night or family night again.
