Good food for a reasonable price, the service can be slow at times, but all in all a good place to eat and at a reasonable price, they also take military discounts which I really appreciate.

Sat at the bar and had great service. The steak was cooked perfectly and tasted great. The ahi tuna appetizer was so good. Just wish they had lower beer prices but overall a great night with my girlfriend!
