Our party waited 30 minutes despite the fact that we had a reservation. A member of our party had a recent surgery and walks with a cane. There were no seats available for her to sit down No apology was offered for the wait or inconvenience.

Ok restaurant for what it is. Barbecue fair was just alright but since it’s their specialty I expected more. No great sauces. Pulled pork was tender but not flavourful. It was The Saturday night before St. Patrick’s Day, so it might have been busier than usual, but we were packed in like sardines. Very noisy!

Overall dinner for 8 was good, the waitress was wonderful. the seating for the Santos show was excellent the only meal issues was the dinner order of brisket - it was very dry - very unlike any previous time we have ordered it - The manager did agree and offered to exchange it but the rest of the dinners had finished eating and the show was starting soon and the dinner said the time and feeling to eat had past.

We like the atmosphere and the food is good. We usually sit in the lounge and have a great time. The lounge on this night was very loud from one table.
Overall a very nice night out.

Made a 7:30 reservation for the bar area & was told to go look at see if something is open. Then we proceed to wait in the bar area for a half hour before we went back to the host requesting further assistance. Just in my opinion, really poor way to greet a client by letting them wait for a half hour.

Great restaurant most of the time, cant go during busy times!!!!

First timers - on recommendation of others we made a reservation - taken immediately to our table - greeted by the manager and promptly by our waitress. 5 people - all enjoyed our meals - only mild disappointment was bland calamari. Bacon sampler and risotto balls were raved about . We will go again for sure. - with our additional college age son during his break!

This was a second recent reservation through you at this restaurant. Both visits we were not seated till 1 hour after our reservation. This past Saturday we missed Prime Rib because we were not seated within a reasonable time of our reservation. I complained to the manager both times. They have two inexperienced persons handling the hostess desk. They do not honor reservations and essentially put you into the pool with people walking in. You wait just like everyone else. VERY UN-PLEASED with this restaurant. We'll be dining at Samuel Slaters in Webster for now on.

Second time at this restaurant. Both times we made reservations on line and both times we waited over 45 minutes to be seated. Busy place, hostesses overwhelmed and didn't use assigned beepers properly. Seated party who had reservations 15 minutes after us before us and said we didn't check in until 25 minutes after our reservations. We were there on time. One party waited for 1.5 hrs to be seated! Brought this to the attention of the manager who was very apologetic and seated us immediately. Once we were seated, food and service was on point. If you plan on eating here, make a reservation and don't plan on getting in at the time you requested. But the wait is worth it!

Noise level is extremely variable based on where you sit. We were lucky and got a far corner table that was away from much of the noise, which was great.
Everything we ordered came out well cooked and with no issues, and the desserts were awesome. Our party got a real variety of meals and all of them were great. No complaints.

It was very cold in the restaurant. I went to the bathroom and tried to warm up by running my hands under cold water but there was only ice cold water. The food was good and the waitress, Tori was great. Will go back.

Speakers seem to always be very LOUD .. wish they would also play soft score of music instead of
HARD rock during the day lunch. The food is always very good, we love going with the minor exception
of the music and loudness.

As always the food and service was outstanding. We were sat in the dinning room to the left of the bar area. It’s too bright in this room. The feel and atmosphere is just not for us. Next time we will request the bar area out front, where it’s a much more fun atmosphere. Food was awesome as usual and our server Leanne for great
