When we went the service was not good at the table at all. I walked up to the bar and got our drinks in one minute. Not sure what happened at the table. I will give it another chance.

Great spot for drinks later in the evening. Fun atmosphere and friendly wait staff. The pool table has new felt and ran great. Recommended for those just wanting a chill place after dinner.
