My coworkers bragged about this place. So we went recently for Karaoke but the machine was covered. The bouncer at the door was rude and aggressively checking ID's. The cheese fries were amazing. The Nachos were amazing. The drinks were made with perfection. I'd go...More

Rude bartenders, food took forever to get, drinks were horrible. Would not waste my time stopping here, there are plenty of bars in the area that are way cleaner, and a lot more fun!
