Was next to our hotel, so stopped in for a drink & appetizer the first night. Attentive bartender, good appetizers. Went for dinner the next night. Had the Mother of all Burgers - bacon wrapped deep fried burger - outstanding. Good mixed drinks. Friendly staff.

Service was painfully slow. Food was average and over-priced. The location is interesting for families with arcade.
