    We had an appetizer (jalapeño dip), followed by the bluegill platter and the Monday special, surf and turf. All were excellent! The service was attentive and friendly. All in all, a wonderful dining experience.

    Food was good. Husband got the lobster roll & loaded fries. He ate it...I didn't care for it. For me, too many flavors covering up the lobster. I had the NY strip with fries & veg. The steak was finished at the right temp, but 1 side was almost burnt. The pretzel was awesome.

    We went there on a Friday night to see the band "The 1985". It was our 1st time there. The service was great, our server Jenni was outstanding! The food was awesome as well. It was a fun time for our girls night out. Would definitely recommend eating here. We will go back. (We were upstairs by the bar). Excellent view to see the band and everyone dancing.

    Well, I can't give a good review because too many things were or went bad. The young lady who served us did everything she could to offset the management that was running the restaurant problems they were having. Our table wasn't the only one having very bad problems. I say problems because there were many that evening. Like I said the server kept apologizing but we felt it was no management problem.

    We had a very new server who was sat several tables in addition to our large party on a very slow evening. She needed additional help with our table. Drinks took a long time, 3 meals were not made with the rest of the group. Checks weren’t accurate but were fixed. The food was exceptional and she was very apologetic. We know you were y see staffed due to the weather, but management could have stepped in to assure things went smoothly.

    Ribs were tuff, got the food before the pretzel which was taken off the bill. The waitress was great, and I do think new years may have been the issue creating disappointment.

    Open Table only gave me a choice between high top table or regular table; it did not mention the round tables that overlook the dance floor which is what I preferred. I was, however, seated at one of the round top tables when I requested it. When I arrived I showed my reservation to a rather scattered brained women who had no idea what to do with it. Luckily another women helped her out and knew what to do. The food is a bit expensive but is well prepared and you get large portions. There is no cover charge for the band that I stayed for and that's worth something. The server was very attentive so I tipped her more than normal.

    Apparently they only have one table that can accommodate more than 6 people so we were given a booth at 8:40 because we were told the kitchen closes at 9. Not that big of a deal so our group of 7 squeezed in. After 15 minutes of several employees walking by and not one stopping to greet us or get a drink order we asked one if we could be helped. He said someone would be with us. 5 minutes later one stopped by with waters for most of the table. We stated how it was 9:00 and were worried to get our orders in on time. He said it was ok the kitchen employees are there until 10:00. We placed our drink orders and asked for waters for the rest of the group. Now 30 minutes after we were seated we received our drinks minus the waters requested. Three of the drinks were different but similar in color. Our server stated he forgot which was which and they were not identified differently with straws. Also the bar was out of limes for those that asked for them. He did offer a suggestion of putting our fingers over the straw and lifting it up to taste a filled straw. We placed our food orders and received our food minus a soup that was ordered and never received. Halfway through eating our meal all the lights in the restaurant turned on and cleanup began. Floors were getting vacuumed and empty plates were coming off our table by any employee that was in the area. The same employees that were in no hurry to help us when we were seated for the first 30 minutes became all hands on deck to get us out of there. The bill came while some were still eating and we had to let him know we never received the soup which he then took off the bill. No server or manager that we spoke to even once apologized for the wait at the beginning, the rush at the end or the service in the middle. The meal ended with two servers standing at each end our table twirling empty trays in their hands waiting to clear our glasses that we were finishing. Not the birthday dinner we had in mind when we reserved.
