Food was great. HOWEVER. Drove 1 hour.... We waited 90 minutes to get our food... Bread took 1 hour. Wrong beer was served.... List goes on. It was a sad experience for a restaurant with such potential. Management should have been upfront when we called in for reservations that "seating is available... But food orders will take up to ... read more

Good food; noisy atmosphere
The food is very good. Busy place on the weekends. Not a place to have a quiet evening because it gets pretty noisy. The wait staff members are very nice and friendly but service is a little slow. Overall, a nice restaurant. Recommend reservations.
