The chicken was terrible. Overcooked and so dry. I had heard so many wonderful things about this restaurant and was anticipating a great meal. I definitely won't be back.

I have seen dogs on the outdoor patio. If it's a big dog, you might want to call ahead and make sure they're not too busy.
Is there a dress code?
