Drag brunch on Sunday. Took two hours after we were seated before we could get food. This is a buffet, but instead of letting you get food whenever, they put it out, let it sit for two hours and then turn a hundred or so people loose on it all at once. Waited in line 30 minutes to get the... More

My friend treated me to my first drag brunch. Unfortunately, the A/C was on the fritz, so the place was literally hot and steamy. Also a shame, we were last to be called to the buffet and by then only scraps were left. They did bring out more food after a while, but there were no plates...and some of the... More

I've been here twice in the past year with friends and both times the food was ok but forgettable. It is typical bar fare but the way to get the best food is go with what they are featuring on that day and it will be fresh and good and priced right. This is a bar that is required by... More

atmosphere was very enthusiastic and friendly. Went not knowing what to fully expect. The staff and entertainers were great; brunch food was much better than expected along with good (and inexpensive) bloody mary's. Could have had a bit more spice, but the dancers made up for it. Solid thumbs up!

This is probably my favorite club in the area. Staff are always friendly and courteous. Anne-Marie in the back knows what drinks I like. Her drinks are also consistently mixed evenly Not sure I'm a fan of the DJ that was playing for the Black & White party. But I don't go often enough to be overly familiar with who... More

I've been to the wave many, many times and I still enjoy myself here. It's not as awesome and popular as it used to be, but they still have a great crowd and music. The bartenders are good for the most part, but they can be rude sometimes. As the only full sized "gay" club (even though it's not strictly... More
