Waiting area is a bit small but have a very welcoming staff. Better to make a reservation ahead of time as spots fill up quickly and you could have an hr plus wait. Our particular server barely came around to check in so we couldn’t get additional items but overall a good experience. They have a sports bar like area so you can watch a game if you like although I couldn’t tell if it was bar like seating. Would return for sure to try out other menu items.

We had a group of 8 people and our server, Naomi, was so kind, she knew when to check back with us, and even was accommodating for one of our guests who arrived quite late. She happily arranged separate checks for us as well. She was extremely attentive, yet left us alone to have conversation. A perfect evening out for our team.
