Place was closed. Owner changed the locks. Online they say they are open but it is a lie.

The food had too much balsamic glaze on pretty much everything. It appears that there's only one server to cover the inside as well as the patio.

There was literally no one else in the dining room on a Saturday night which seemed odd. The skewers were good but certainly not good enough to warrant the price. Plus, I got sick in the middle of the night which I can only assume was from the food. I honestly would have been more satisfied going to a fast food place and spending $20.

The unique-ness of the menu stood out, which is why I purchased a Groupon for this restaurant. However, this place disappointed. We planned on getting the beef tenderloin and salmon and they were out of both of those options. I almost cried because u had been looking forward to some good beef for dinner and my husband was excited for the salmon. I ordered a lemonade and I was told all they have is coke, diet coke, and sprite, plus they were also out of lemons! What? I asked the waitress why they were out of so many things and she responded "well, it's Sunday, and we don't keep a lot on hand." Ummmmmm...??? We ordered the stuffed mushrooms, which were good, but had WAY too many breadcrumbs, making it almost a stuffing. We ended up ordering the bacon wrapped dates (which were the best part of our meal), the pork (was ok), and the meatballs (which were not good). We ordered the loaded mashed potatoes, which looked amazing when they came out, but definitely lacked flavor all around, and they were dry! Our waitress did well with refills on my husband's coke and she even gave me a free refill on my shirley temple. (We're not big drinkers). Would I go back or suggest it to others? No, probably not.

Table silverware was dirty and the drink was nasty and the food was way over cook. Definitely will not be back.

Only thing they didn't have was hot sauce. Other than that we really enjoyed ourselves and the music was great
