“Love the food - great happy hour!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

I love this restaurant. First, they have great coupon deals. But even beyond that, they have a great happy hour with $6 drinks and dishes. Prime rib nachos are the best! We often take people there to celebrate as it is classy yet not a wallet buster. The appetizers are my favorite, and the prime rib is one the best in town.

“Not coming back”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

Went on a Saturday night at 6;30pm. The place was half full. We got a seat at the bar. They had two bartenders. It took them 10 minutes before they said anything to us. There was only about 5 other people sitting near us. We order drinks. My husband got the ahi tar tar. He said the fish was not fresh. He didn't finish it. We also got a calamari which was good and the top sirloin. The meat was chewy. Overall the place was disappointing. We used to love coming here. We both walked out saying it would be the last time.

“Excellent food, music, employees”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

Wow. Highly recommend! Try to go on Wednesday or Friday when a man was singing, keyboards were playing, in the back area - next time I want to sit there! (I hear that Tuesdays swing, with a Sinatra type singer). We started with the cream cheese filled dates wrapped with bacon. Wonderful is an understatement. You must try them if you eat pork. Then the crabcakes. They were good, but they weren't lump crab, so it seemed as if they were more cake than crab. Next,Joey had the rib eye - he was in heaven. I had the lamb with rosemary cream sauce and mushrooms. Luscious. But by then I was pretty full, so we took our leftovers home for lunch the next day, and we were very happy two days in a row.

“Waiters like Will make this place shine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

From start to finish, our waiter, Will, was top notch. Loved having our cloth napkins placed on each of our laps...he made you feel special. The timing of presenting each course was spot on, served with a smile and attentiveness to detail. We took advantage of the 4-course meal coupon (most entres regularly $39, but with coupon $29 - with filet mignon, regular price $49, but with coupon $39). Stuffed crab cakes were tasty. Not huge prime rib lovers, so dove into filet mignon which was mouth-watering good. Drinks were generous. Okay selection of ales. Attention to detail, cheeriness and fabulous service made this one of our best dining experiences and we will return. Off street parking. Close to downtown for after-dinner fun. Thank you again, Will, for the excellent service! Thumbs up!

Visiting from Chicago, was referred to place by local friends. When arrived at 5:00 only few people at bar for happy hour. Before you know it the place was full. Also one man band was excellent, we both had steak and was very good, everything was excellent would highly recommend. Also great happy hour, give it a try.
