Hot, loud and dark. If I wanted a nightclub atmosphere then I would just go to a nightclub. This was at 6:30 on a Saturday night - so how bout you let the families and older couples enjoy their meal before cranking the party up? Food was ok and the service was spotty since it was so busy, but we couldn’t wait to get out of there.

The food was good but the service was horrific. It took 40 minutes to get our drinks, one friends drink had no ice because it had completely melted between the time it was made and when it was delivered to our table. Our waiter disappeared for half an hour, when we asked where he was, they told us, in the bathroom. They forgot one main course, it came out after all of the food had been eaten. We are not complainers, but we asked to speak to the manager. He threw our waiter under the bus with everything we told him. The bartenders were also incredibly rude. My husband brought my full drink back up, because our waiter was no where to be found, and told them my drink was basically water, they yelled at him. The food we received was delicious, but we will never return because of the service.

After being seated at a dirty table with food debris and dirty napkins under the table, our server (who was wearing her mask over her mouth but not her nose) took our drink orders despite not being provided a drinks menu. We drank water. We had to ask for napkins and silverware. The shrimp appetizer was excellent. Our main dishes arrived several minutes apart, but were all delicious.

Went there for brunch with my wife, very good ambiance but the service wasn’t good at all, not because of the waitress, she had 9 tables for her on a Sunday afternoon day

Service was terrible, took an hour and a half to receive our entrees and each one came out at separate times with a good 10 minutes between when each person at the table received their entree.

Will not go back.

I want to start by saying, I will be going back. Food was very good, the homemade potato chips are a must! Large outdoor seating in the front and indoors is very nice too. My only complaint, our appetizer dishes were never taken away, our entrees came out and we had to eat with the dirty appetizer dishes still on the table. Our waitress was very nice, but unfortunately like most restaurants they were short-staffed.

Great place but clearly understaffed. It took about 15 minutes to get a server. Not a place to go if you’re in a rush, but if you aren’t it’s a great spot.

Only good things to say about this place! Outstanding service, the food was amazing (there’s something for everyone!) the music and drinks were really good, ambience was a 10/10.
The staff was super accommodating and extremely friendly.
Great spot for birthdays, they have special bakery items and cute birthday candles!
This place is a hidden gem. Definitely check it out!

The food was delicious and good quality. I think some the apps are a little pricier than they need to be but not so unreasonable that I wouldn't order them again. It was nice being able to sit outside and enjoy a cooler summer evening and the staff was attentive/made sure we were adequately hydrated.

The place was very nice and inviting. The music was definitely too loud for dining. Impossible to talk without yelling. It took 25 minutes for our drinks to come. I will say the food came out very fast in a good way and before our drinks came. Additionally, the three bathrooms were occupied almost the entire time and by employees. Our server was very nice and the food was good. I would opt for the bar or eat outside based on the noise level. Parking was challenging but that’s a given in this area.
