Service was really poor. We waited forever to get our food and drinks. When the food arrived, it was good, not great (and I am pretty easy to please). Ambiance outside is nice, but inside is "sketchy" as my daughter would say!

While the service was fast, and the food decent, I was underwhelmed. We walked in at 7pm on Sunday night, they close at nine. The place was empty and we asked if we could sit at the empty bar. The server told us the bar...More
