    The items ordered were creative but not very good. Also my coffee never was refilled, and I was never asked to refill it. We were required to make a reservation... just one hour available, but the place was empty. Other than that our waiter was courteous and smiled a lot.

    Really enjoyed our dinning experience this evening. The ambiance was nice, perfect for an evening to catch up with a good friend. I had the mushroom truffle pizza which was excellent and my friend had the Which Came First Turkey Burger with sweet potato fries which she also enjoyed. The service was a little lacking in attention but everyone was extremely nice and responsive once you caught their eye. I will defiantly be back and recommend this spot to others.

    We had reservations at 830pm Friday night for 4. The second we got there they told us we had to order in the next 10 minutes as the bar and kitchen are closing. Why take our reservations then and who closes at 830 on a Friday night?! We went to Cheesecake Factory after an hour which was open till midnight.

    Sadly, what used to be a go-to place for us to take our kids had definitely taken a turn for the worse. The food is just not good. Even the food in the kids menu was borderline inedible. I had a southwest bowl and it was under filled and sub par. We won’t be going back.

    Sorry for your trouble. We had no hot water in the restaurant and shut the doors to avoid potential health department fines which can lead to the restaurant closure. Also, we made sure to call and cancel all our reservations at that time.

    If a server is going to wear a mask, wear it completely or at least let the diners know you’re vaccinated. Next, if you have 90% vacancy at the restaurant, probably worth not putting two different parties next to each other or at least have them seat one table apart… There’s a little thing called a pandemic happening right now, so every small step helps stop the spread.
