    I was actually surprised it was a bar with tvs all around. However the food was delicious. I had the ribs and my husband had the prime rib. Both were cooked very well and tasted delicious. The tvs were on soccer game and so you could hear them. Not overly loud but definitely there. We went on a Sunday after a movie, so it was at 5:30 (pretty early for us). I would say the dinner crowd, of mainly older retiree age, really started to come in around 6-6:15.

    Sat out on the patio with misters. Quite since we were the only ones sitting on the patio on a very hot day. We ordered on a lunch special menu. Our salads were very delicious. Service was good. Definitely will be returning, especially at lunch. Maybe have a happy hour drink specials for lunch. Thank you

    We tried the Famous 48 Restaurant Week menu, which was a good deal at $55 for 2 people (2 entrees, but sharing only 1 appetizer and 1 dessert). The food was pretty good. We had the prime rib and salmon entrees, with good portions and sides. The only negative in our experience was that our server, while friendly, was not terribly efficient. It took a long time for her to take our orders, and at the end of meal, we had to ask like 4 times to get a take-out box for our leftovers.

    Second time in a week, needed a casual sport to chill and get good food. Had a burger, roasted corn and egg rolls. All were very good. And portions are plenty. The wait staff are friendly and sweet.
