Food was overpriced for what we received. Had to ask servers for the same thing several times. Went on a night they had trivia and the volume was high. Will not be back.

My husband is Handicapped and walks with a cane- the hostess sat us all the way in the back of the Restaurant and up two steps. when she finally noticed he had a cane she offered to walk us back to the front of the restaurant to wait for a table up front.

Service was very poor. It took us 20 minutes just to get waters and another 5 for beer. The waitress did not help a whole lot to help with beer and food choices.

Three guys coming in for a decent meal and beer. Didn't realize it was Oktoberfest celebration. Special dress by wait-staff, specials on menu made this a special occasion. Food was always good at this restaurant but this celebration added to the fun. Oh yes, we're 3 old guys that felt like we were receiving extra special treatment. Thanks for a fun night out.

You definitely need to make a reservation on this restaurant busy days. We were there a Wednesday night pack no reservation wait time about more than an hour.. We went again on Tuesday night with a reservation and it was smooth service. Delicious food!!!

The food was really great! We had a really good time and our server, Morgan, was super nice and helpful with suggestions. The beers were awesome and it was great fun to try some new and different things. Our party of four all enjoyed their food, it was served in a timely matter and everyone also held to the COVID mandates (as far as masks and social distancing) In fact, this was the most normal restaraunt experience we have had since all of this started. The staff made it a fun and enjoyable evening. Everyone was really friendly without being overly involved and again, it was all just really great.
