Went to a birthday get together drag brunch. Amazing time and the food was very good. If you have a chance to check it out---do it! You will not be disappointed.

Thought is a place for a quick drink. Nope. Big enough to find a place pretty quick, nice service, good drinks list, fine wines. The food was surprisingly good, tapas, goat cheese pizza, fine deserts. Service was also very nice.

Came to celebrate a friends birthday weekend. Food, music and drinks was good. The only two things that made the brunch average was that it was so hard to get to the buffet! It was a really small area for a big restaurant, so all...More

Office goers unwind before heading home. 30 people on a Thursday evening, so this is popular with the locals. Had to try their eponymous drink. It hit me pretty quickly. Michael's Mule that my wife had was potent. Big pegs. Unlike the drinks, the food...More

I would say the $40 was worth it for the all you can eat brunch style & show that lasts a couple of hours. Will you be going to the Drag show themed brunch? If so, the show may not be appropriate as the girl's outfits may a... More
