Stopped in to Penny Black early in the evening for drinks and appetizers. Service was decent and the atmosphere is great. We were told that the place gets much busier in the evening when the DJ arrives.

Very good happy hour for drinks and food. In the Summer time the Patio is great place to hangout and enjoy the summer weather. Food is always good and service is great. Try the specials that change weekly and you won't be disappointed. Great Place.

In short: Food is bland and flavorless. The wait staff were less than helpful and unfriendly, one had a major hygiene problem, and the music was entirely too loud for the dinner crowd. Also, could have done without the bartender shouting and high-fiving a drunk...More
