    We left without buying anything. I tried to make a reservation to sit outdoors, but we were told it wasn't possible and we were seated inside near the bar. The music was horribly loud. Very, very unpleasant. Why would the mgmt do that?? No one could hear their companions speak or the server. Stupid and offensive. The bench seat had flies all over it. Obviously something was spilled and not cleaned up. The server slapped at the seat to make the flies go away and didn't bother trying to clean the seat. We requested to move. One of our party got ketchup or something else red on her shirt from the edge of the table not being clean. We asked to be moved outside. The manager went to the wrong table to speak with them and the other people said they didn't want to move, so she left it at that. We couldn't stay in that nasty atmosphere.

    We had a great time. Our table was a tight fit on the patio though. On one side the chairs were teetering on the side of a drop off on the ground, so it was difficult to push back without falling over. On the other side, one of the guest’s chairs backed right into a patio umbrella so he couldn’t back up either. It felt like they squeezed in an extra table where there really wasn’t room.

    I had a party of 6 people, 4 were visitors from Scotland. The Scots were absolutely thrilled with the food, salmon, the salad, the sundae. The service was warm not interfering. We sat outside, gorgeous view.

    I am not sure about the food because we didn't get to taste it. We requested an outdoor table and was told they closed it already when they had over 2 hours to close. Inside there was no air conditioning whatsoever. It smelled VERY VERY bad. We couldn't handle it and asked them for an outdoor seat but they insisted no although many people were sitting there already so we left. I mean we are still living in a pandemic world and they have no air circulation. It smells like sweat mixed with food and seasoning to an extent were you feel like puking. So nah no never going back, not recommending to anyone. This was a week in advance pre-booked reservation for my birthday... It's just sad.

    Booked a reservation for a birthday and was pretty much given the worst table in the restaurant. After discussing with Hosts the provided us with a different seating, yet not much better. It was cold and didn’t feel very “patio like” The host said she was not allowed to move tables around to seat us in a better spot, interestingly enough it was possible for other parties! Not very impressed with service of the Hosts. Our server was great though!

    I visit this place often. Haven't been there in a while. Prices are much higher I get that! But should that mean quality of the food goes down? The portions are smaller now even though they have to jack up the price. Sad really! If you want customers to keep coming back you should not lower the quality of your food. I always have the crispy chicken sandwich and it was always a decent size. Last night was like I ordered a kid size burger. I'm sorry but I won't be back there any time soon.

    Ordered medium rare steak and it came out well done. Normally don't like to do this, but well done is not enjoyable, so I sent it back. Got the second steak and it was medium well. Cook needs to learn to cook steak better. Waitress was great.

    We waited for more than 45 minutes to get our food, our waitress did not offer us water, but another waiter that was just passing gave us the water and apologized. The restaurant was not even that busy. We were lucky that we order a couple of appetizers at the moment we ordered our drinks, so we got those after 20 minutes then once we got our drinks we ordered the rest of the food, and that took 45 minutes ... very poor service, so disappointed.
