First timers, so family style was new to us. Party of four not heavy eaters. We brought a lot of food home. When we return, 1 small pasta, 1 small entree would be sufficient. Food was top notch.

Dined here and brought a friend for her first visit here. I had the French Dip and a Dos Equis Lager. She had the Shrimp taco plate. We both enjoyed our meals. My friend mentioned to me she like the atmosphere of the restaurant. The server, Krystal, was friendly and attentive. The total tab with tax and tip was $60. Hope to visit again in the near future.

Upscale restaurant great vibe just when they get busy I feel they’re understaffed. Drinks could be a little stronger. Food is good portions. Highly recommend pork bites.

Very nice lunch - hamburger was [surprisingly] cooked to order (rare)!! Rarely does that happen - pun intended. Fries were delicious, but could have been hotter. Fernanda provided excellent service.
