Was here on a weekend evening. The place is smaller and cozy. The waiter service was poor and speed of food and drink was poor. Parking isn't great either nearby. Overall food was meh.

Ate here with family last week and really enjoyed the atmosphere and food. Had a good meal of grilled fish and our server was the best. Will definitely come back hopefully when there is live music.

If you are 40 plus then this is the place for you. I have never felt so young until having a beer here on a friday night. We had brunch here the next morning and its better to stick to the liquids at night.
