    The chicken Naan sandwich is very good. Great beer selection. Restaurant is a large open room, can get a bit noisy, in the age of Covid, some tables are pretty close to each other. Overall nice bar atmosphere with good food.

    Good family restaurant. Disappointed there were only 2 entrees, pretty much just a pizza and sandwich place. Cocktails were inconsistent (same drink, different glassware, different garnish, came with ice when ordered without)

    This is a pretty cool place. Large and quite crowded. Make a reservation! Great beer selection. Food is average at best. We had BiBimBap and Tacos and both were pretty flavorless. It took about 20 for a server to stop by our table, but once she did, the service was good.

    The pizza and salads were very good. My wife's tuna was exactly how she liked it. The pizza and salads were brought out together, so the pizza was a bit cold by the time I started eating it. Bringing all out at once is not the best.

    We reserved a six top for inside so we could watch our favorite teams on multiple TVs. The Session Room did not honor our reservation! we had to eat out doors, under a tent. The food here is sub-par. None of the dishes we'd ordered was any good at all. I've attempted many times to find something I like on the menu, but have been unsuccessful. When I asked if I could bring a cake in for the guest of honor, I was told that a $25 cake cutting fee was required. (fine, that's typical... but unnecessary. ) Bathrooms well designed, but unclean and disgusting. I will never spend me money here again.
