    Love it! Food was great! Not to crazy about onion rings - to much bread! Waitress was nice and friendly! room was noisy - and tables were not all in use! Would recommend to others! Did not care for Pepsi products - prefer Coke!

    Everything was very good! What would have made it outstanding was if the workers would have remembered my note (request) from the reservation for my mom and her fiancés birthday. All I wanted was a dessert at the end of our meal that said happy birthday ____ and ____. Other than that, like I said, it was very good.

    We were delayed (kids sports game ending) and the hostess very nicely pushed back our reservation twice. Server was great and food was delicious. Didn't like wrestling on the giant tv we were facing. Music super loud and room very full - table of 4 and we couldn't hear each other

    Always lots of options on the menu- We had a “picky” eater with us and our waitress made sure his hamburger came out just the way he wanted it. I had a salad and added shrimp & it made a tasty dinner for Lent, my husband got a burger he loved and his onion rings were delicious, hot and crisp. I particularly like the way the servers work together to make sure the diners have a good experience,

    Our server lacked in attentiveness. Nachos came out for the table, but our 2 salads never arrived. We had to ask for them 30 minutes later-- when we could finally get her attention. While bussing the nachos away, my fork ended up on the floor. Server picked it up & said she'd be back with a new one, which did not happen. I had to find her to ask for another while the rest of my table ate.

    The Gorgonberry Pecan Salad was excellent! But the burgers seemed to pale in comparison; they were cooked a perfect Medium but both my husband and I would've liked a little more flavor/"oomph" in the burgers (Bourbon & The End burgers). Overall a good experience! Thank you!
