if you want to get on roof get there early! But there two other floors to choose from. We did have an obnoxious young man next to us who could only communicate by yelling but our waitress was great and the beer was cold

This place is great for the simple fact that you can listen to live music. Most evenings there is a local band showcasing their musical talents. The staff are polite & efficient and deliver service with a smile. The food is good and there is...More

The food is wonderful, a little over priced but tasty. It can get loud during the summer and weekends. I was the manager here about 30 years ago and the place is still operating still after all that time. The restaurant must be doing something...More

Was one of our favorite "locals" places with live music back in the early 90's, so we were thrilled to look down the alley and see that it's still there some 20 years later, and decided to have dinner there for old-times-sake. The halibut fish-n-chips...More

This has the feel of a college bar with more sofas and casual seating than tables and a large space for live music. That said the menu choices were unexpected and tasted fantastic. They also made one of the best Amaretto Sours I've had in...More
