We spent a great afternoon listening to music and having cocktails and appetizers. The wait staff are fun and friendly. It was a bit chilly so we stayed in the covered area but it was fine.

Food and drinks were fine. Prices were very reasonable. Rustic surroundings. They have entertainment, but none while we were there. Pleasant staff. Would hang out there again in the future.

We are completely outdoors, so yes smoking is allowed although most guests are very considerate to ask the tables nearby if it will be offensive.
