I was afraid it would be loud and noisy bar atmosphere (which my mother hates) as it was wing night, however it wasn't like that at all. Service was quick and friendly.

Always great service, good food and cold drinks. Stan runs a tight ship and it's always a lot of fun. Good selection of domestic and international dishes.

New here so everyone said go here, but I heard horror stories. I know I know. So we went at 5 pm on a Wednesday and the servers had no idea what to say for a minute. Weird. But it was packed and was told we needed a reservation. Really? Or wait maybe an hour? Not an hour, maybe..... really?... More

The menu has a large assortment of delicious food. The staff are always very friendly and parking is always available. A great spot for meeting clients, friends and family. If you are an Attack Hockey fan this is the place to be before and after the game!

Been here a couple times in the last year. Love wing night. Service is decent, food is decent, prices are decent. It's not a hoity toity tourist trap, but really hits the mark with great local atmosphere. I wouldn't hesitate to return. I can't say that about many restaurants in the area.

We tried a bunch of things off the menu. The wings, the French Onion soup and the small batch bourbon took the cake.
