Enjoyed a terrific evening of excellent food and live music on Friday evening. We went early, and it was a good thing, as there was a line out the door when we left. The servers also took good care of us.

I'm sorry but we were there during the summer time and they may be on winter hours now, so I apologize that I cannot answer your question.
