    Food and beer list are both very good. Servers are stretched way too thin leading to lengthy delays and mistakes. Another place with apparent staffing issues.

    First time I was there for me and my coworker celebrating my new job coming up. Food was excellent. Service a little slow we ordered drinks and there was barely anyone there it was about 10-15 minutes before we got them. Overall I would go back again.

    On a Friday night, the hostess and the bartender were the only ones working. And they were working their tails off, while about 5 other employees were kind of milling around, apparently taking care of 7 or 8 other tables seated in the place. We were seated, sat down, and no one came to check on us or get our drink orders for at least ten minutes. So we left our table and moved to the bar. The bartender was awesome, but as he was taking drink orders, food orders, talking with customers, and being forced to service and run his own food orders... I couldve jumped behind the bar for refills a couple times, the bar was untended for 5 minutes or so as he ran to the kitchen repeatedly. I ordered a burger medium and my date ordered soup and sandwich. Hers came out awesome, was really tasty and done right; great soup. My "medium" burger was raw all the way through, with a tiny brown layer about 1/8" deep. It was dripping blood and mooing all over my plate, it was like a tartar in a bun. anyway, it was all just OK, can't say I'd go back with a date again though. Maybe it's better on saturdays.

    I made reservations early 3:45 on Father's day allowing for staff shortage . Restuarant was only 1/4 full. Hostess seemed flustered and not very friendly..She sat us at a table where a waiter had not been assigned. We waited 20 min until I stopped someone, which I think was the manager ,and mentioned that no one had come to our table in 20 min. A very nice waiter then PICKED up our table and did a very good job, but he was very busy handling all of his normal assignments. They did offer us an appetizer. I go to the bucket a lot but I was very disappointed on this special day.

    I was surprised that the menu was so varied and comprehensive. My two companions each had burgers and thought they were okay, while I haf a salmon salad, which I enjoyed. The service was slow, but it wasn't our waitress' fault. When we walked in, the hostess was cleaning a table and didn't return to her desk for a long time. She also lacked charm!

    Ordered the trio with the sandwich, soup and salad. The soup came out cold and the sandwich and salad were not fresh. I’m guessing my food had been sitting there while the other entrees at the table were being made. The burger and fries that my son got was really good, but the other food was just okay. We also waited over an hour for our food. I probably wouldn’t rush to go back here anytime soon.

    My only negative was that the music from the kitchen was loud. We were sitting in the booth closest to the kitchen. I don't begrudge employees from enjoying their tunes, but their tunes and the tunes being played in the dining area were competing with each other.

    The waitress told us she was sorry but the staffing was very low for this Saturday. We actually saw people leaving stating they were leaving because no one was there to service them. We weren't in a hurry so we didn't mind waiting some, however, the wait was very long in between the waitress checking on us. The food was average at best. We waited so long to go out to dinner and we were very disappointed in this experience.

    Terrible! 25 minute wait at the table before a server arrived. Eight tables sat at the exact time in the same section. Had to go to the bar to purchase cocktails or continue to wait. Had to go to the service station to get silverware. Never received ketchup requested. Nachos were cold. Will not return until management gets it together.
