Dined here recently with a rather large group of people. While I must say this is a beer, burger and wings place, what it also bears saying is that with a large group of people ordering, my burger came out EXACTLY as I ordered. You can't say this about some finer restaurants. We had burgers, wings, salads, risotto, meatloaf (this... More

I went to a birthday party for one of my clients, Naomi Achu, an AfroBeat singer/songwriter. The party was hosted by DJ Chick. I had a great time and DJ Chick made sure we had first pick from the available VIP booths. I will say that I wish there was an elevator available for use by patrons. The stairs to... More

When I read reviews of a restaurant I generally take them with a grain of salt, understanding that these opinions are founded on a multitude of differing cultural and life experiences that led these people to judge service here as "poor". So I'm here to set the record straight. I'm not Anthony Bourdain, but I've been to enough restaurants around... More

The place has gone to pot. Tonight's menu was spoiled by the restaurant's choice to polyurethane the bar while customers were eating at the bar. To top off the unhealthy environment, the staff when asked to stop so I could at least finish my dinner without having to smell even more polyurethane ignored my request and simply kept on dishing...

We were there for a quick lunch on a Sunday. A football game was on in the bar area and it was very noisy, so we opted to eat outside. We were the only ones there, which could account for our waitress not returning for long periods of time. The food choices are a bit more varied than your standard... More

The burgers were ok, cooked to order and the seasoned wedge fries were crisp and tasty. Went on a Saturday eve around 8:30 and there were not too many people there which made me wonder if we should eat here. Not sorry I stayed. Clean airy look and friendly waiter.

The space is fairly large and can accommodate families. The have great windows with plenty of natural light. Beyond the design, the place is rather average. The menu has plenty of recognizable food items and a well stocked bar. The service is very casual, even at the bar you'll have if-y service. The hostess was friendly and patient though.

Very comfortable and interesting decor. Wonderful viewing experience for every family member. Excellent American fare menu with loads of specialty drinks (done well). Great for kids, family, friends and happy hour. Make sure you check out $5 burgers on Mondays. Any burger your way for $5. Awesome, well prepared and juicy burgers with all the sides. Just far enough away... More

I have been having lunch here 2 - 3 times a year over the past 5 years. Initially it was a solid average spot for a light meal and a glass of wine. The food remains okay = no change. The service continues to decline. This afternoon there was a minimal crowd; however, our waiter came around after I had... More

First the good: Average fried pub food all frozen no doubt but decent enough for what it is worth. Interesting cool atmosphere. Real firehouse with original subway tile etc. The bad; we were a large party of 10 and we arrived early (4:30) and the restaurant was very quiet. The waitress seemed nice but scattered and confused. She started to... More
