I ordered the lobster tacos this past weekend and was instead served CRAWFISH tacos. So disappointing that I was mislead on the menu. I contacted the management via email and did not get a response back. Very terrible customer service.

Although I've never had a meal here, I can say that it's a common place I get together with my friends for drinks. We love to make it our first stop and it's definitely our favorite downtown bar.
