Service was great, food was excellent. Noise level quite high( of course it was after a Bills game, so it was loud). I’m hoping our next visit will be a bit quieter.

As expressed to the hostess and server, the number of flies at the front two window seats is overwhelming. As soon as our food arrived, the flies were even more unbearable. We initially moved from the other front window seat but it wasn't any better.

Food was pretty decent except the fries tasted like onions. Waitress was so-so. Maybe she was new? The biggest issue was that we were getting "rained on" from the duct work. Yes it was very warm out and it appeared that the ducts were extremely wet from condensation, the waitress told us to move the table...

Never disappointed. I had the Nashville chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries and my husband had the American burger with a side of Brussels 🥰 Our favorite for date night. An amazing selection of bourbon. Love the ambiance.

Another fine time, this occasional with family. Service was a little off though…water glasses weren’t refilled, drinks were done for a long while before asked if we’d like another and the fries (which are the best in my book) were overdone to a crisp. When mentioned to the waitress, she apologized but didn’t offer any option (replacement?) to rectify my disappointment!

Food was amazing! Everyone loved their meal. We were a party of 6, they seated us outside and the flies were very bothersome. I won't sit outside again but will definitely return.
