“Don't waste your time or money !!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2011

Surly nasty bartenders. Tried to carry on a conversation with Chris, the bartender when we first arrived and he told me he didn't have to smile or go beyond the point of asking me what I wanted. Rude and surly crew. There are so many more places to choose from. Do not waste your time or your money. My friend was dancing by the bar and they threatened her to move or they would throw her out. One waitress attempting to keep up with alot of tables. This place is really really bad. When you go out for a fun evening to listen to music and dance do not choose this.

“Nice bar, good music many times live,80ties,decent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2011

We have been coming here for the last 17 years.My wife absolutely loves the baked brie. A must eat. I eat usually something different everytime always very good food. A little on the expensive side for the food served. Good place to take a date. Not so much a place for families.

“T J Dawgs their great...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2010

most uncomfortable place in Orange County; severe attitude all the way down to the bus boys. I wouldn't spend the money. Too many other friendlier places to go to spend your money and have fun.

“Lovely quiet Valentines Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2010

My husband & I celebrated our 1 year anniversary here, along with Valentines day. We were seated outside near the fire, where it was rather quiet, but could still hear the music from the band playing inside.

Service was just a little slow but very friendly & everything tasted wonderful! We weren't in any hurry so we enjoyed the evening very much. Crab Cakes, Sauteed Mushrooms, and a Chicken & Pasta with spicy thai peanut sauce. . .but the best was the freshmade-straight from the oven-bread we were served to start with oil & balsamic dipping sauce. Oh sooo hot and oooooh so soft. Very nice atmosphere but they are right off the street, but we didn't mind the traffic at all. Food & drinks were excellent with nice presentation (see pix).
