There were 2 in my party, the other being at SSB for the first time. He REALLY enjoyed it and even mentioned returning before September. The food was fab and the waiter was great. We were NOT rushed thereby we could enjoy our appetizer, drinks and chat as we needed to catch up.
In the past when I've sat AT the bar, I found it very hard to "eat my meal" there, as had to sit sideways on the bar stool. There doesn't seem to be much knee space when sitting there, but would definitely stop in for drinks and not hesitate to sit at the bar. Otherwise, we just grab a table in the lounge to listen to the entertainment.
A VERY nice place in the center of Hampton.
