This is our go to place. Everything on the menu is amazing. The wait staff are all excellent. The portions are huge and if you leave hungry it’s your fault!

I frequent this restaurant and have been going here for over 20 years. Food has always been good. I like the wings, wraps, salads, daily specials, soups, and sandwiches. The staff can customize anything you order and don't mind doing so.

Stopped for lunch on our way through and picked this restaurant because of the good reviews on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. It was very crowded, but we were able to snag two chairs at the bar. Good beer selection and Wimbledon on the TV...More

First, it was very crowded, which can be a good thing (you know people like it) but tough sometimes to get a seat. Crowds slowed down the wait staff but everyone was cheerful. The food was worth the wait and the bar choices helped. Overall,...More

It would be tricky. The bar area isn't huge and the dining area is tight. Don't know where they'd set you up. Plus, the acoustics can be a little weird. You can hear everyone's conversation, especially in the very back room.
