This restaurant was recommended to us and it was great. Good drinks and good food. The bartender/waitress was helpful and attentive. The food was reasonably priced and so were the adult beverages.

We came for New Year's Eve and were pleased with the scene. Seemed to be mostly locals casually enjoying a night out. The wait staff was friendly and responsive. The drinks were good and not overpriced. The scene was mellow.
