We had a couple of visits here. Good cocktails and reasonably priced, especially at Happy Hour. A reasonable choice of food at reasonable prices. Friendly service. Busy place in the evening.

Thinking about going to the $40/pp all you can eat brunch with free mimosas. Has anyone gone? Is it worth the price? Also, would it be appropriate to bring my 15 yo son and 20 yo daughter?
