Excellent meal in a casual setting. The waiter was amazing! His name was Eric and he gave us just the right amount of attention. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Super crowded...but an awesome place to have a few drinks if the weather is good. Staff aren't super great....but maybe it was because the place was so crowded. Didn't eat, but food looked really good. Been to one in Denver and really enjoyed it.
