Coffee had a terrible after taste. Food was just okay. Didn’t finish my meal. Appetizers were the only thing i really enjoyed. Drove from Keller to eat here to try something new. Wouldn’t do it again.

Great menu. Drinks were really good! Server was consistently checking if we needed anything, also very nice and professional. Great for watching sports, TV's in every wall and music.

We had a party of 12 for New Years Eve. We sat on the patio. It was heated and comfortable. Service was great and the food was fantastic. Highly recommend the Romano Chicken.

We were seated right on time and were able to take advantage of the happy hour food and drink menu before 6pm. The food was delicious and our nieces especially loved the mac and cheese. We were partial to the enormous burgers and crispy fries (could likely share one order and save room for dessert next time). It is dark and loud with very tall ceilings, so make sure you’re sitting directly next to who you want to talk to as our post-Christmas party of 8 at a long table struggled to hear one another. We think it’s perfect for a party of 4 though!

The brunch was excellent. I had the french toast which was one of the best I've ever had. The service was great even with the Cowboys playing and the restaurant being pretty busy. I would highly recommend the brunch.

Excellent Seasonal Menu dishes! For example, Braised Port Belly Ramen! Highly recommend this restaurant and one of the reasons is that this restaurant lets you customize a dish to your liking, great for some of us who have dietary requirements or just like to eat healthy!

My husband and I both love this place and it is hard to please the both of us together as a couple at one restaurant. I love the environment. We love the staff. We love having Morgan as our waitress and the Manager took time to talk with us. My husband loves the screens that play football. The food is phenomenal. I have not had a dish I did not like.

We were there for Sunday brunch for our first visit. The waffles were great, but my wife wasn't blown away by the French toast.

Our waiter said they were understaffed that particular day, but he was a ghost. Iced tea didn't arrive until after our entree, and I had to go up to the bar for my 1st (and only) refill.

Enjoyed everything but the service. We'll go back, but strike two and you're out.

Terrible!! Maybe the worst service by staff and manager. I would never repeat. Too many great places to waste your money or time on a place that just doesn't care about the people that come in.

Took a friend there from out of town and the server never check on us we had to flag down servers. We arrived 30 minutes before happy hour and tried to order a drink the waiter stalled tell it was over. This is the second time the experience gets worst each time. Don’t waste your money or time. Asked for a manager and was told one was not available at 6:30 on a Friday!

Atmosphere is nice and new. Sports Bar - Pub atmosphere. It is, however, a very loud spot.

Service is good.

They stay very busy, so I would suggest making reservations,

Eggs Benedict was over cooked - eggs ended up being soft boiled instead of properly slightly runny. No one ever asked how the food quality was after bringing the dishes...

Excellent waiter! First drink ordered seemed lacking something, and he immediately replaced it with a redo that was spot on! The Impossible Burger and fries were delicious! Great evening!

Had lunch w/ my daughter. Very attentive service. The hostess was aware and set up a table in the back so the we could talk in a quieter setting. Very much appreciated. The waitress made good food recommendations and service was very good. Very nice experience!

Great place for food and pretty good service most of the time. Unfortunately this place is known for continous advertising of "specials" that have bizarre restrictions and employees have no knowledge of. Discounted drinks when the temperature is over 95, BUT you have to order and drink outside in the sun! College football beer specials, BUT only until 3:00PM even though no games they list start before that time!

We went here at the suggestion of our daughter-in-law for a birthday celebration for our son. Because of some of the reviews we had read, we decided to arrive early in order to get the table for 4 and wait for them to arrive. When we arrived, we were met and seated fairly quickly to a table of our liking. We noticed that there are a number of tables that are a high top type, probably 60% maybe more of the tables are this type both inside and outside, then only 20% of a traditional height table/booth. The remainder of the tables were at the bar. We opted for a table that was a traditional height since my wife is short and does not like her feet to rest on foot rests or "dangle" for extended periods of time.

We were met promptly by our server Savanah, who was most likable and easy to please. She mentioned that "Happy Hour" was still in progress but we noticed that it was a very limited menu. The menu itself was quite varied and fairly easy to find something to eat. We ordered everything from we had their bacon wrapped dates & queso dip to start (both were very good) then on to the main course. We had salads to a dressed up burger to one of their specialty chicken dishes to even their specialty scallops & veggies. All were good to very good. Savanah then brought out a brownie & ice-cream desert (complimentary) for the son's birthday, she said it was delicious.....I am glad it was complimentary, terrible way to end the evening.

We would go back but I would certainly get there in time to get one of the traditional height tables. One further note. They do not offer napkins for your drinks so you are always dripping condensation all over your clothing. I asked for a napkin, the answer, we don't have them. They should re-think that one.

We had brunch for a friend and were able to make reservations, which was terrific. The offerings were unique and the various flavors blended terrifically. Our waitress saw the gift bags and asked if there was an occasion, and we told her it was a birthday. She said "happy birthday" and I kinda said, "That's it, right"...meaning we weren't reeeeally wanting a singing party. She said yep, but at the end of our meal, she had a brownie dessert brought out. Which was fantastic. A pleasant relaxing experience.
