    It was very tasty and the waitress was very helpful but I do think it's a bit overpriced for the portion. It was also very cold in the restaurant which diminished my enjoyment a bit but overall very good.

    Margaritas were the special drink, but I sent mine back. It was so bitter that they must have left out the simple syrup. The salad was great with feta cheese crumbs and a great dressing. The hamburger was very good. My friend had wings and also liked them.

    Our waitress had no voice so it was concerning that she might be contagious. My husband is post chemo immune compromised so it put a damper on our dinner. Chips and salsa appetizer only came with a few chips and no one offered to refill. The manager filled our drinks because our waitress was not around for a while… we waited a while before we could track her down for our check.

    Good service. Good food. Cost a little more then I expected. Used to have daily specials and I missed that. For those of us that don’t eat potatoes, needed more side vegetable selections.

    Table was exactly what we had requested for six people, a table and not a booth. Comfortable and roomy seating. Plenty of table space for appetizers and complete order. Server was very good and attentive. Food was well worth the money. Nice selection of specialty drinks. Everyone was happy with our time there.

    The food was really good. I’m glad we made a reservation wait time to be seated was 35 mins. The service wasn’t the greatest our server seemed really overwhelmed with the amount of tables she had only checked on us once. We had asked for refills of our drinks and we never got them. I’d go back again just for the food maybe at a time when hopefully they aren’t so busy and possibly have a better service experience.

    Had dinner with a friend here and we both had soup and salad. The Soup of the Day was Lobster Bisque abs it was fantastic! We each also had a Double Nickel salad that was equally scrumptious and just enough to feel full without over-indulging! Excellent place for a family meal, too!

    Rusty Bucket - DaytonResponded on February 14, 2022Thank you for your great comments and 5 stars. We noticed that we fell a little short in our ambience; we would love to hear where we could improve. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

    Excellent main dishes (fish), and good bourbon choices (though they were out of "Gary's Blend"). Our server was courteous, fun, and worked hard. I could tell other servers were working hard, too. My wife and I always enjoy "Whiskey Wednesday", and this night was yet another good one. Thanks.

    The food was not very good. I had the baja tacos and they were very skimpy with the fish. One tiny piece per taco. The tortilla was just taken out of a bag and not even heated. It was cold and stale. The street corn was served cold and in a lot of liquid, which is untypical. My companion got the Trio which he said was just ok. Neither was worth the price charged. Maybe in the $8-9 range, but not the $13-16 it cost. Service was ok. Not a horrible experience, but I won't go back.

    Seems like they needed help with the beer taps. Every beer we ordered, they were either out or the tap wasn’t working. Blue moon and Stella weren’t available. She kept bringing out samples but they weren’t any where near what we would drink. Overall, the food was great. The onion ring appetizers were small! Maybe 2 for each person.. not my ideal for an appetizer.

    Rusty Bucket - DaytonResponded on April 30, 2021Thank you for the 5 stars and we're sorry to hear that during your visit our beer selection wasn't up to our standards.
