Atmosphere was great, though a bit dark. We had no trouble being seated. I believe our waitress was not trained properly, though it is just my guess anyway.(As we walked out, three waitresses were at the hostess table all looking at there touch tone screens...More

The portions are nice and big. Flavor was spot on. Monday night it was easy to find a table in the bar section. Waitress was attentive and very nice. Wish Merced still had Cool Hand Luke's. Nice place to have dinner!!

We came here for date night and loved everything. We both really loved the drum menu. They had a lot of drinks we love(Manhattan, Makers Whiskey Sour). The food we ordered was also very delicious. We will be back soon.
