    We had a great corner of the restaurant and were pleased with our food, server and atmosphere to visit and hear one another.

    We went as a party of 8 people for a birthday dinner. When we arrived our table was ready and we were seated immediately! The staff was friendly and allowed us to close the curtain by our table to have our own space! The menu is extensive and there is something for every eater, and the prices are incredibly affordable for downtown. The theme and vibe of the restaurant is a really cool and relaxed environment. Before we left, our server helped us get a group photo by the bar, shaped like a pirate sailboat and we were grateful for that! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone!

    Service was fast and friendly. Martinis were excellent - we had the "flower child" and "here to stay". We loved that the martinis were poured tableside and filled to the brim. Even better would have been to leave the shaker at the table (like they do at Jensen's Supper Club in Eagan). The food was just OK. The margarita flatbread was very greasy. The linguine and clams could have had more noodles and there was a weird crunchy raw vegetable (maybe onions and/or garlic?) Would recommend coming for a cocktail and maybe having dinner elsewhere. Or order something different to eat.

    The best part of the whole experience was the service which was exceptional. I can't remember her name but she was a young woman with a lot of piercings and tatoos and was just an absolutely fabulous server.
