The burger was completely dry and tasteless. I had a very bad show with my friends because I brought them there. NEVER COME BACK AGAIN!

We were with a large group of people--people came early, some came later...with this water it didn't matter. He handled it all graciously and seamlessly. The Chicken Marsala is very good, as was my blackened Mahi. The bill (tip included and with 4 drinks) came to about $100. Not unrealistic. Overall, a very enjoyable experience.

This was a lunch with business colleagues. First we had to wait for the waiter. Then he took a long time to bring our drinks. We finally ordered and it took an excessive amount of time for the food to arrive. And of eight of us four plates were not correct. Lettuce where there wasn’t supposed to be lettuce. Missing onion. Incorrect fries. Incorrect cook on one burger. My chicken salad was bland. But I did enjoy the sweet potato fries when the arrived. Probably won’t return here.

We stopped into 219 on a rainy afternoon for a beer and to watch the Masters. Staff was friendly and personable and atmosphere was welcoming and casual. We will definitely come back to eat!
