They have NO Joke, Ginormous Alaskan King Crab Legs!! It's always a lively crowd there and they have LIVE Music too! (Weekend LIVE Jazz and The Kelly Brothers dueling... More

Excellent food, inviting atmosphere, and an attentive, friendly waitress --- a really great night out!. The was a misunderstanding on our hors d'oeuvre order (probably my fault); but the maitre d' handled the situation with aplomb and we were not even charged for one or our hors d'oeuvres. The wine menu was ample and our selection turned out to be... More

We arrived early for our our reservations and were seated immediately and tended to by a great staff. Upon opening the menu I realized the prices I saw online were nowhere near what I was seeing. No matter,... More

The atmoshere and the service were very good, which is why I didn't give it 2 stars. The food was very below average. I ordered the shrimp stuffed with crab. It was completely tasteless. The stuffing consisted almost entirely of bread crumbs. I could not see or taste any crab. My husband had the chicken piccata which was also very... More

We just came upon this place a couple weekends ago. We found out they recently opened the outside area up with the dueling pianos. It was so much fun!! Such a nice addition to the night life in Bakersfield.

I was here for a work event. We held a group presentation in the room next to the bar. Our server Brianne was wonderful. She was very pleasant and she did not disrupt our presentation at all. The food was delicious.

Been going to this restaurant since opening. It started good, however has fallen off on food quality and service. My wife had an expensive fish special recently. After sending back because it was cold, the quality was poor to fair. I told the manager about it and he just brushed it off. I will never go back. There are too... More
