We could hardly hear each other, but to their credit. We all felt the food was very good. A fun place for young adults.

Pretzels were amazing. Fried chicken was good Mashed potato & gravy side was awful. Compared to what I make at home it tasted awful. Potatoes were thin no salt or taste & gravy was inedible.

Found this place on a recommendation from my hotel bartender and it didn't disappoint!! The food was delicious and the happy hour is in point. The bartenders were friendly and the restaurant itself is awesome. I can't recommend this place enough!!

This is a very high energy restaurant. We did have a reservation but it still took at least 20 minutes to get seated. There were six of us; 4 adults and 2 children All of us enjoyed our meals and we each ordered something different....More

It accommodates both. When we were leaving there was a couple sitting in the outside patio with twins about 2 years old and she had enough room for her double stroller and the kids were having a good time.
