We came here prior to the Hurricanes game. I expected that the parking charge would have been discounted if not free since we were dining at the restaurant. We were told the parking would be $25. That is more than the general parking at the Honda Center which is $20. Very disappointing that there wasn't a discounted rate since we spent money to eat there. The service was not good. We saw the waiter 3 times. One to ask our drink order, two to ask our food order, and three to drop off the check. I was not impressed with the food either. We sat at a small table for two and did not have enough room on the table for our plates of food and drinks. We were also placed right by the kitchen so it was very distracting and chaotic. Overall, I will not come again. Total bad experience.

We were there for business and there was a Ducks game across the street so the noise level was high. I should have checked prior to making this reservation.
We were disappointed when one of the dishes came to the table wrong; wrong cheese, wrong potatoes, etc. Waitress offered to bring another plate, but we decided to pass as we all already had our meals. The wrong meal went untouched and the waitress was very nice to remove it from our bill.

Fish was over cooked. They had trouble finding my reservation. When they finally found it, I told them I was there for a birthday celebration. They said they would tell the server, but did not. Would not go back.

We went before the rush hour so it was pretty empty but I know this place can get packed considering it’s proximity to the Honda Center and Angel Stadium. Great waitress with excellent customer service. Nice talking to her as well! Food was good for what it was and I would go back here for some drinks with friends or to watch sports games.

Overall this is a nice restaurant. We were seated quickly but it took awhile to get served maybe due to the holiday. Both of us thought our food was a bit off in taste. Im assuming it's us more than the food but wanted to note it. Probably won't return anytime soon.

Halibut fish and chips was off the chart good. My recommendation would be to put the coleslaw on a separate plate, if you are going to put the hot food under the heat lamps, waiting for the server to pick it up. Nothing worse than warm coleslaw with a mayo based dressing.

Food was typical sports bar/gastropub fare. It's nothing to write home about but it's fine. The portions are very large and the options are varied.

Our first time there but it was great service and food and cocktails. Picked it because it was near the Honda Center which was convenient because we had tickets to Janet Jackson that night, so eating there was perfect! Had a great time definitely will go again.

Service was great. Food was subpar. The salad was lettuce and an 8th of a small tomato. The pizza was bland (and we ordered the spicy pepperoni). I've had decent food there before, but the menu has grown smaller and smaller while the preparation has become bland and uninteresting.

We ate lunch here before a special event at the Honda Center, which is located across the street. Super busy, but luckily I made a reservation, so we were seated immediately. We were sat at a small table next to the kitchen & all the food was prepared right next to us, all the food looked amazing! Food was delicious, only complaint was that they only had one small TV playing an NFL game! Other than that, we were pleased & will definitely be coming back!

We meet here every year for our High School reunion and dine first. One of our guests is in a wheel chair and they always make sure to accommodate his needs. I needed to change the reservation total twice and the were very helpful and positive about doing so. The food was great as always. Everyone in the party had something different and everyone seemed very happy with their selections.
