    Wanted to stop somewhere for brunch but everywhere was busy - typed “bloody mary” into google maps and it took us here. The spicy bloody mary was amazing! The menu had a lot of variety too. 10/10

    Our service was slow but it was aFriday so I can overlook that. They did was average. The bread on my fish sandwich was old. It just crumbled. My husband had the Cuban and thought it was just average. Very bland. Probably won’t go again. It’s not inexpensive, over priced

    We've dined at a different location of this restaurant and were very pleased. This location was dirty, seemed poorly managed and the ambiance severely lacking. Though few diners were there, they still needed to clean a table to seat us. They were out of the sandwich I ordered, but did not find out until 15 minutes after I ordered, so by the time I ordered a substitute, it took over an hour to get served. Our waitress was good, but overall staff under trained, under motivated, and management appeared to either not be present or not engaged.

    Definitely get a reservation on the weekend. We go anytime we are eating out after a movie and have been very happy with food and the service. Only down side is the noise level. The room seems to carry noise which makes it hard to carry on conversation.

    We were there with a large group (9 people) on a Friday night. Service was fairly slow but they were obviously understaffed. Most restaurants won’t seat more than 6 people, so we were happy to find a place that would accommodate. The food and drink were great!

    A very busy night, but we still got seated before our reservation time (we arrived early). Service & Food were great, although this is a "high energy" place on a nice Friday night. Definitely not a place for a "quiet dinner" the place was quite loud, but the servers and staffs did great. Enjoyed the Buffalo Chicken Soup as part of the TRIO while my wife had the Fish Tacos and Dad in lad had the Fish & Chips. Definitely recommend but also definitely make reservations!

    Overall, a letdown from previous experiences. Green beans still had stems attached. Additionally, an order for a club sandwich without tomato, came WITH tomatoes nonetheless. Meatloaf was also not hot, just warm. Hopefully not a sign of things to come for the future.

    Server could have been a little more attentive, especially towards the end. We were finished a good 15-20 minutes or more before she finally came back around so we could get our checks and go. Almost ended up late for our plans after dinner. I do understand it was a Saturday night and she was probably really busy though so I'm not too upset. Overall good food, decent service, will definitely go back.
