    We arrived with a larger group and they accommodated us anyway even though they were busy! Server was great with a great attitude. The food was tastey! We ordered a few apps and some pizzas for our group. Everything came out on time and hot even though it was hopping. Drinks were good. We didn’t try dessert but the table next to us did and it looked good. We really enjoyed it.

    Terrible service, but good food and atmosphere. Our waiter was MIA, had to wait for 30 mins for drinks and it wasn’t busy

    Seated with a group of 10 for dinner and drinks. After ordering a round of drinks, it took 20 minutes for drinks to be dropped off and 3 people never received theirs. Despite consistent attempts to get a server to our table, we sat for another 25 mins with no assistance from any staff. After being there for 45-55 minutes, We decided to skip dinner and order chipotle instead. When we finally flagged someone down and asked for our bill, we were initially charged for all drinks despite not receiving 3 of them. Not to mention there is karaoke blaring while trying to converse with friends. Safe to say we won’t be back.

    Luce our server was new but worked her to keep learning. Wings order could have been bigger, and beer selection was spotty, but atmosphere, sound and screens for football were all good!
