Six of us stopped in the other evening for a quick supper before a concert at a local university. We were served immediately by a very attentive server. Our food was good as were the cocktails and beers. All in all, a nice meal.

I say 'surprisingly' because after reading dozens of other reviews, there was no way to know what to expect; the reviews varied from A+ to F-. My only visit was Sunday 11/6/16 at around 6pm. The crowd was very light which may have helped. We...More

It pretty much agrees with my rating. We will not be returning either. They either ignore you or rush you out.
