    Always a go to for friend dinners. It’s a really fun atmosphere. Even though you are thier to grill things….try some of the starters and kitchen prepared items. I go with the mushroom medley, spicy edamame and and shishto peppers and pork shoulder . Then filet on the grill

    Great appetizers and love the vibe of this place! Will always come back, I wish that the grill would heat evenly but once you find the good spots, the food is excellent!
